Ode to a giant

for many it was a spectacle
for some there was no escape
volunteer, enslaved or professional
we freed ourselves through your gates

in your vastness we felt like giants
in your arena we defined our fate
your decline haven’t yet silenced
our memories, lust for blood or hate

may your ruins tell our story
to those who walk through Rome
good fortune, death and glory
where a hero fell now falls a stone
