Poem to the Gladiator

I've been assigned an indecorous labor
A labor offering bellicose entertainment
Undertaking gory acts that once caused me ailment
I'm invoked to serve as a traitor

To call a land Barbaric
For their limited knowledge in Latin
And then destroy the laws of the gods
Is the reason why Motherland keeps me up in aw

In lack of a word to save me
I've taken the task that may be
The most horrendous to my chaste
Corrupting my morals
