Deus Nobiscum - If God Is With Us - Poem by Juan Ponce de León

Deus nobiscum.

Deo duce, ferro comitante
Quis contra?
Duas tantum res anxius optat, panem et circenses.
Bellum se ipsum alet‎


If god is with us.

With God as my leader and my sword as my companion
Who can be against us?
Two things only do the people earnestly desire, bread and the circus
The war feeds itself
