From Satyrica, a recent translation of Petronius’ novel by R. Bracht Branham and Daniel Kinney. The first five sentences on page 123 actually extend over to 124:

But just who fears my name?
Who wants to stop me? Pawns without a name –
bought and sold, cheap – stepsons of Mother Rome!

It’s part of a poem, of course; a parody of Lucan’s Civil War by the character Eumpolus after a banquet.

Okee-dokee; I’m not sure they’re following, by I’m tagging Mr. Red Pants, Farrah, Catherine, Bill B., and Henri again, since he may need a little encouragement.
