The Gladiator

well the gladiator was
sad he ate her
he hacked his lady down
and winced to watch her warm sweet blood
seep into the ground
but the gladiator was
sad he ate her
he did not have a choice
the lady had been banished for
singing with her voice
and when she returned, the emperor
he cast her into the pit
and as for her
executioner
it was our hero that he picked
so the gladiator was
sad he ate her
but was himself a slave
and the carcass of his victim was
only vittles master gave
yes the gladiator was
sad he ate her
but he’s got to survive
if he’s gonna slay that emperor
he’s got to stay alive
