What is to become of us, are we to war against ourselves for the second time in a civil war? Perhaps that is all that is left to save our country!

The Battle Cry of Sorrow


Oh, the stones do cry out!
Why don’t you scream and shout?

Oh, lack civility!
How stupid can you be?

Arise, set fires er’where!
Better burn than pull hair!

You don’t id-ly ‘brace rape,
Subdue those who rape state!

Pull them out – hang them up!
No more will they steal cup!

Ere guns pried from cold hands,
We’ll fill dead in these lands,

We won’t sit and do naught!
But boldly do what we aught!

Enemies are landfill,
‘Gainst our determined will,

All tyrants blood will dim,
We will not suffer them!

We do not suffer fools!
Who misuse country’s tools,

If must fight own country,
Yes, we will, to be free!

Dear one, I am placing scribings by Captain James Galiac Sananda and Captain Adrigon who both speak to the patriots with their advice.

They are followed by Captain Hatonn who also has a word to the wise.

They are waiting to be moderated. .

Perhaps you would care to visit my profile and also view the article which I, myself wrote, "You cannot fight a war without soldiers!"

Tankermone this is filled with meaning but most people are too cowardly to say Boo and so bend under the crassness of others. In medieval days the people rebelled in England but after the king made false promises they went home and there were slaughtered...
