For The Fallen Of ATOS

December 11, 2013

A rewrite of the old classic poem of tribute to England’s soldiers. Please share and use as you wish.

For The Fallen Of ATOS

In tribute and thanksgiving, a community for its own,

We mourn for all who died for the ATOS ESA

Flesh of our flesh, maybe not, but they were spirit of our spirit,

Sadly there are more cases each and every day.


These solemn words to bring sad smiles, as their deaths, come too soon,

Take our sorrow up into immortal spheres,

There is poetry in the midst of desolation

And a glory that shines upon our tears.


Some went with songs into the battle of life, they were young,

Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against circumstances altered,
They fell with their faces to the foe.

They shall grow no older, as we that are left shall grow older,

Age shall weary them no further, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning,

We will remember them.


They mingle not with their laughing comrades again;
They sit no more at familiar tables of home;
They have no more lot in our battles against ATOS,
They sleep now in their homeland’s foam.

But where our desires are and our hopes profound,
Felt as a well-spring that is hidden from sight,
To the innermost heart of their own community, they are known
As the stars are known to the Night;

As the stars that shall be bright when we are dust,
Moving in marches upon the heavenly plain;
As the stars that are starry in the time of our darkness,
To the end, to the end, they remain.

    That is a lovely poem indeed. It is just a shame that so many people died needlessly in the first place because of Tory monsters.
