Resist the Flood

The Persians offered the Spartans
A chance to live, but upon their knees
The Spartans said no
For to live is to be free
The Persians declared
They'd blacken the sun with arrows
The Spartans replied
Then we'll have shade to fight in
The Persians demanded the weapons
Of the Spartans to be surrendered
The Spartans said
Come and Take them
The empire won
But not before
The Spartans lived
By dying
