The Battle Of Thermopylae

Hearing of a Persian invasion,

the Spartan King marched for his nation,

To a narrow pass, he would defend.

Persians demanded they drop their weapons,

Spartans replied, their future destined,

"Molon Labe"  Come and get them!

    "The Three Hundred Spartans" was one of my favorite movies while growing up. You have described that historic ancient Greek battle in this write.

    I like the modern version too. The term "Molon Labe" ( Come and take) has surfaced do to the gun debate. It inspired this.

    Never heard of this. But what a great way to tell of it, in this poetry form.
