Pompey, your son-in-law, resolves to topple you from power. Do I summon you with mouth sufficiently abominable and polluted? Rome with its citizens and subject peoples, a Rome that could well hold the whole human race collected, was left a ready prize to Caesar, by cowardly hands. Switching scenes to Pompey, his forces intercept a raft carrying Caesarians, who prefer to kill each other rather than be taken prisoner.

At its mouth the sea has been largely silted up. Our only battlefield, no sailor's hand Upon thy shore should make his cable fast; No spade should turn, the husbandman should flee Thy fields, the resting-place of Roman dead; Lucans Pharsalia book lowing kine should graze, nor shepherd dare To leave his fleecy charge to browse at will Lucans Pharsalia book fields made fertile by our mouldering dust; All bare and unexplored thy soil should lie, As past man's footsteps, parched by cruel suns, Or palled by snows unmelting!
