    The last two lines summarise the flawless write. But how can such violence be a "game"? Anyway Good luck for the contest.

    Excellent! Good luck in the contest. I've never written a choka...didn't know what one was until I saw the contest. I'm not even positive the one I entered is a choka at all.

    WOW, David, have you seen mine? That too is my theme. how death is his freedom. I was amazed to learn they lived very short lives and often fought less than a few times in their lives! Yours is GREAT. And also you used first person, a big plus.

    Great entry for the contest David! It made me visualize what Caesar was watching. I am glad you came out the winner - or did you? I like the line "death is his freedom"
