Under the scorching sun
An old Roman senator sat
Studying it all
And slowly came to realize that
He bears witness to the empire’s fall
And so began his intricate plan
For the imminent end
So savage and so cruel
Was this strive to mend
It lay waste to the Roman rule
*The winner will receive the first production version of the SBC. Prototype devices destined for developers will ship first.
The Pine Store cannot ship to countries under international embargo (North Korea, Iran, etc.,).
