“Cry ‘Havoc’!”

_quote Blood and destruction shall be so in use
And dreadful objects so familiar
That mothers shall but smile when they behold
Their infants quarter'd with the hands of war;
All pity choked with custom of fell deeds:
And Caesar's spirit, ranging for revenge,
With Ate by his side come hot from hell,
Shall in these confines with a monarch's voice
Cry 'Havoc,' and let slip the dogs of war… ”

- Mark Antony speaking in Shakespeare’s ‘Julius Caesar,
presaging Rome’s future after Caesar’s murder
