Gladiators

Swords 
crossed.
Shields
raised.
Battle
engaged.
Back and
forth.
Parry and
thrust.
Warriors
intense.
Swords
flailing
looking
for blood.
Shields
held high.
Dare not
sweat.
Weakness.
Hold strong.
Furious
engagement.
Epic, 
all out 
carnage.
Outcome
uncertain,
in doubt.
Gladiators.
Bloodied
yet unbeaten.
Battle
rages on.
Pounding.
Gaining leverage.
Pounding
with the
sword.
Knees
buckle.
Warrior
collapses,
head bowed.
Victory!
Negotiations
complete.
Hand outreaches
ordeal overcome.
Modernities
Gladiators!
Check signed.
Taking
the keys,
driving home
a success.
