In the Spartan Way – A poem.

This is a comedy poem and is in no way supposed to be derogatory or a reflection of historical truth. 

 

It was the Spartan way,

To be strong and tough and gay.

And in each dell and glade

Their muscles they displayed,

But when Athens’ army called

Their manly bravery stalled

and Athens won the day,

when Sparta bravely ran away.

Now the films recall again

Those strong five hundred men.
