Spolarium and the Gods

Dr Abe V Rotor
Living with Nature School on Blog
Paaralang Bayan sa Himpapawid (People's School-on-Air) with Ms Melly C Tenorio
738 DZRB AM Band, 8 to 9 evening class, Monday to Friday

Spolarium by Juan Luna, National Museum Manila
Spolarium - how well meant,
and remembered in Juan Luna's vision -
the Gladiators, whose death and surrender
brought ruin to a great nation
and rebirth of another.

In Iliad and Odyssey
the gods bestow on men honor
the lives of those in another Kingdom,
just once and nothing more,
leading mortals to doom.~
