Gladiator

As a coliseum warrior, his only verve
Catapults the moments, continuing swerve.
Mighty, fearless, assembled and brave.
Oblivious forthcoming, unafraid.
Arrives each crossroad, frayed, tattered and torn.
Grasping his reflections, embracing his scorn.
Riddles and rhymes become the only crime.
Elucidate superfluous evaluations time after time.
Now search the crevices that perch in the night
Our existence sustaining panoramic delight.
Revitalized, enliven purposely cleave
Bewilderment gives way to victory.
Explore, discover the ruins once owned.
Mobilize, rationalize each related tone.
Past, present, future flows through each soul
Never, ever let your Gladiator go.
