'Twas the night of Moklumnue, and all 'cross the waste, All the Xeno were stirring, for Templar bloods taste, The gear we'd equipped was chosen with care, In the hopes that we'd survive, with hit points to spare,
The new recruits were snuggled back on the Righteous to wait, With hope filled dreams of getting deployment late, I in my armor, and Dalan popping caps, Had just helped our first Engineer lay down turret traps,
When from the west trench, there arose such a clatter, I sprang past the ODB gun, to see what was the matter, Away to the west I flew like a flash, Moved my six, then engaged Warriors Wrath,
Revealed in the light as the fog of war rolled back, Were a horde of Xeno, on the attack, When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, But a cache of supply points, and a second Engineer!
With Boosted Reactor, so lively and quick, I knew in a moment we'd recruited Shelnix, More rapid than Scitterings, his turrets he deployed, He called them by name, I knew it was something he enjoyed: "On Dasher, on Dancer, on Smasher and Vixen, On Comet, on Cupid, on Gunnar and Blitz'em!"
As dry leaves that before the hurricane fly, When the Xeno meet the HMG hail, they wither and die, So up over trench walls purple gore flew, Well engineered, those turrets struck true,
I sprang to the east, gave my Squad a whistle, And to the next objective we flew like a thistle, But I heard the turrets reckoning 'ere we drove out of sight, Sending Xeno to hell to the left and the right!

By Shalun, by the Core, Hit Kaldun, 'tis no more, Ask War Worm, how's it feel? Slashed, shot, burned, fire and steel!

Still air Hall long empty now coated in dust Whine Whir The stillness is broken Gears protesting the passage of time Tireless Watching Awaiting an enemy that threatens no more The Templars you gaurded long departed Abandoned Forgotten The war has moved elsewhere But still you stand sentry Gaurdian Shield Forever vigilant Vae Victus
