The 300 Spartans, who we all know so well,
Stood fast at Thermopylae against Xerxes will.
These 300 Spartans, accompanied by their squires and other Greek souls,
Actually stood 4000 strong with weapons and armor.
They stood there,4000 men, with all the courage they could find,
To face the Persians with no peace of mind.
They knew it was suicide, defending the narrow pass,
But they had to buy time for the rest of Greece to mass.
