Straight into jaws of death,

 

Both bold and weak,

 

Under the black banner,

 

Declaration of a new state,

 

Rocks roll in their heads,

 

Is this even about pride?

 

Is God truly on their side?

 

The preachers say go forth,

 

The naysayers question the faith,

 

On the wings of a bloddy angel,

 

Getting skulls for the throne,

 

A black crusade of the sword,

 

Some say give mercy,

 

Others draw no quarter,

 

As blood is spilled for so many reasons,

 

Crying out that old soldier yell,

 

As the sands question their methods,

 

The faithless desert,

 

Leaving their thousands to few,

 

Besieging the sought after,

 

Like a flood of poisoned water,

 

Tainted with dissent and bloated self-worth,

 

Yet they fight on,

 

And even through the darkest of fates,

 

Proudly they die as the sun rises,

 

Illuminatin their corpses on the sand
