A Song Before Battle

“If we live not another day
    Say this over our pyre
That we died like Legion hainadar
    With our faces to the fire.

“But once we live tomorrow
    In a body free of pain
Then bring us ale and whiskey
    Until we die again!”

– regimental song of the 22nd “Alatian Highlanders” Legion
