I AM GLADIATOR

I AM GLADIATOR

On a misty
Autumn's morn
the Stadium
begins to fill

In the cages
the lions are
being taunted
into rage
by the slaves
A Preparatory exercise
to insure
an exciting event

The Stadium
is divided with
an audience
of two sides
The Left
and The Right
Sheepishly
controlled
by the One World Order
of Thought

The Lions
are the
well trained
Media
"Fox"
"CNN"
"The Washington Post"
are examples of the
Predators
ready to
pounce on their Prey

A species
custom
designed
by George Orwell's
fictional ( yet non fictional)
Character
"Big Brother"

The "Free Thinkers"
You know the ones
who dare to
support
the equality
of all but
insist
that the government
should
not interfere
with  the individual's
ability
to think
freely,
are the Gladiators

Our voices
will not
be silenced
no matter
how many
times
we are shamed
by
being labeled
a "Trump Supporter
Racist"
or a" tree hugger
Rainbow coalition
Socialist".

Our Shield
is our
ability
to stand up
and think
for ourselves
Our Spear
is the refusal
to take sides
to the Political
Powers that corrupt
our Society's
views

The Gladiator
cherishes
the individual's
God Given
right
to make
their own choices
this includes
a Woman's right
to choose
a Gay couple right to marry
and the right
to not have to explain
why one may choose
to own a AR15 Rifle

We stand and Fight
because
we will
not submit
to dictatorial
submission

The battle will
be long with
massive casualties
however
victory
is ours
once we win
the hearts
of the audience

The beauty of living in a country where freedoms of speech, religion and individual rights are protected is that you never have to apologize for what you believe in and stand for.
Fight for it? ... Oh, absolutely.
Defend your stance at times? ... Of course.
But apologize?
Never...

Yes Dean! You are right. I am so disgusted with both parties that it drives me to write.  I am even more disappointed with the audience ( society) at this point

yeah tony a lot big brother shit going on and if you object your either a racist or a liberal pot smoking communist pig.  For myself I hate both sides.  I want to think for myself without someone telling me I think my way because of privilege!  It is all shaming and power play

Hello Greg...

I want the taxpayers money returned to the people that was used for others agendas and failed us and we never should have to struggle in this manner that many so do suffer...

The fast rail in California is just one example of how the tax payers paid and it's at a stop because, they didn't take the mountains and the other challenges into the equation...

They didn't have enough faith to move mountains...

The safety of the people isn't their concern...

I think we know what's coming and people are getting ready because, before we give up anymore to support their ideas and they're tearing down and we're paying for it and supporting the criminals something's got to give...

Great write!

Thank you for sharing...

Hugs...

Great metaphorical write....I feel like a lone gladiator in an arena ready to pounce and leave me without a weapon to defend myself.  I am so sick of the accusations and assumptions that are made when anyone stands up for what it right....no justice there.  xo ;)
