MANDATE OF THE TITANS
Words: Steve Brinich
Tune: The Battle-Hymn Of The Republic

We shall put an end to Stanley; we are certain to succeed
He has squandered all his warlords; he has no-one left to lead
We have gathered an alliance with four times the force we'll need
As we go marching on!

CHORUS 1
Rightful royal rule defended!
Order and tradition mended!
Regicide usurper ended!
The Titans' will be done!


He has set his traps and played his tricks, but all to no avail
He has taken his best shot at us, and we have seen it fail
We approach the final battle, and we know we shall prevail
As we go marching on!

CHORUS 1


He has fled, but we know where; he cannot run away and hide
His city walls won't keep us out; we've found a way inside
Just one more turn will see the end of Stanley's upstart pride
As we go marching on!

CHORUS 1


(slow, dirgelike)
My strike force has been croaked; the flyers met with some mishap
And my mercenary ally gladly played me for a sap
Then the foe offered surrender... but it's just bait for a trap
And I come falling down

CHORUS 2
Righteous royal prince descended
Reckless, proud, overextended
So the great crusade is ended
The Titans' will... undone?


(increasing speed and energy)
It's not the end... I understand... I see I was a fool
The Titans' real mandate is conveyed by Arkentool
And I see that I am called to bring the world to Holy rule
As we go marching on!

(rousing)
FINAL CHORUS
Now, the truth I've comprehended!
Ancient error shall be mended!
Obsolete old order ended!
The Titans' will be done!

    Well done, you obviously worked pretty hard on that one.

    BTW, I hate poetry with a passion, but I enjoyed that :)

    Thanks for the comments. About half of it came pretty easily, and the other half in fits and starts as I kept twisting the semantic Rubik's cube to get the right meaning* into phrases that rhymed and scanned. :)

    *That meaning being "the Titans are on Ansom's side, because his is the side of Truth and Justice and Key Lime Pie, both before and after a 180 degree turn in what exactly his side is".

    Could we get a link or something to an mp3 or Youtube of the Battle-Hymn of the Republic? You're talking about that Star Wars anthem, right?

    Not quite. The Battle Hymn of the Republic was written way back in the day and was popularized during the American Civil War.
