Fair Dinkum Haiku 057: Arena.


Gladiators strive.
In vast blood soaked Arena.
For brutal prestige.

gladiators are pro warriors but they're too dangerous and often deadly.

Hi Windsmoke,
The first thing that comes to mind of course is the Gladiator movies.

G' Day RED: You've got it spot on :-).

G' Day LIFE RAMBLINGS: They were real killing machines that showed no mercy to their opponents :-).

G' Day MAGS: This Haiku was inspired by the tv show Spartacus: God of the Arena :-).
