And you think this theater has crumbled

Colosseum where gladiators fought and tourists walk

Pick a side, any side,

we don’t care, we just like you mad,

cuz mad people’s glares

blind them in the mouth of fangs

ready to chew up strangers

like foolish prey.

Open our eyes on this wise:

gladiators

who are out for blood

forget the emperor and soldiers

who put us there

to watch us fight,

who glut themselves

on the sight.
