AtoZ2019G

Its April of 2019 and Day 07 of A to Z Challenge. I am doing Foreign word/phrase a day and 8 line poem for it.

Word/Phrase: gladius
Language: Latin
Meaning: (in ancient Rome) a short sword

Poem:
the gladius,
came with a warning.
while the belief,
held lie.
trust,
contained rust.
agreed,
had a greed.

Interpretation:
Words and Actions can do more damage than a mighty sword.
