Panem et Circenses

The Romans had their gladiators

and the Spanish their bulls.

At least their bread was good

and not a moldy mouthful.

The show here and now

in the good old U.S. of A

may be just as violent

in its own very special way.

There is still a lot of bull

and one victor will survive

but of one thing we can be sure

we cannot let hatred thrive.
