Into the farthest of night
Enlisted and readied to stand
A conflict to forfeit or fight
Blood on sabered hands

Vehemence never to pauper
Settled this impetuous province
Bold and brass their falter
Set forth this their pretense

A point of origin withdrawn
Opposite the spar to indict
Rarest of lands to move on
Never to contradict

Dominions of commonwealth
Breaking the ties of hope
Dispersing marring stealth
Death becomes the rope

Scars befall the fortunate
Steadfast to depart the moor
But left the conflict indefinite
So ensues the start of the war
