    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    I Hope that was supposed to be "Folklore"! I couldn't quite figure out what law they flew into it, so that would make better sense! lol (Just kidding you, Jake!)
