Spartacus

By Arjun Dahal

A Thracian by birth, And once a roman soldier, Was deserted and later, Enslaved as a gladiator. A heavyweight Murmillo, Charmed by his Gladius and Scutum, He was the slave leader Spartacus.   70 of men plotted a revolt, Succeeded, Defeated the small legions sent after them. With the march of time, Recruited other slaves. And the rebel army was formed.   With the charge of Crassius, In the legion of Roman army, The rebel suffered the losses. Spartacus- Who was betrayed by the pirates, For safe transport to Sicily, Finally felt to dust.
