Gladiator

I wrote this late last night (I actually typed it in my phone as Steve was snoring away beside me) after watching Spartacus. It's not very good, and definitely not complete, but maybe it'll grow up and become a real poem one day.


As blood sprays across the sands,
a cheer and delighted show of hands
echoes and roars around the stands
as another soul departs these lands.
No entertainment in mercy here,
just a vicious thirst that feeds on fear.
