Time Shift 33

by Denny Marshall

Coliseum’s deafening roar
Gladiator’s sword above me
Ready to strike blow
Saved by a lion

Cheers splash like waves
King commands an order
Clad soldiers approach
In shining chariot

Run for the exit
No match for titans
Caught in the grip
Of muscle and steel

In heavy chains
Strung to rusted stone walls
The links dragging
Play like drumbeats

In waiting dungeon
With cold damp companions
The strange keys hang
Calling out of reach
While fate is close
Plan an escape
