The Charge of the Scout Brigade

Postby Weapioneer » Wed Mar 26, 2014 10:58 am

I got bored, and remembered Alfred Tennyson's poem, The charge of the Light Brigade while listening to crimson bow and arrow. 15 min later, this is the result.

The Charge of the Scout Brigade
Half a league, half a league,
Half a league onward,
All in the forest of Death,
Rode the six hundred.
'Forward, the scout Brigade!
Charge for the titans he said:
Into the forest of Death
Rode the six hundred.

'Forward, the scout Brigade!'
Was there a man dismay'd?
Not tho' the scouts knew
Some one had blunder'd:
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die:
Into the forest of Death
Rode the six hundred.

titans to right of them,
titans to left of them,
titans in front of them
smashed and roared;
Storm'd forth with blades aloft,
Boldly they rode and well,
Into the jaws of Death,
Into the mouth of Hell
Rode the six hundred.

Flash'd all their blades bare,
Flash'd as they spun in air
slashing the titans there,
Charging an hoard while
All the world wonder'd:
Plunged in the titan-smoke
Right thro' the line they broke;
aberrant and small
Reel'd from the blade-stroke
Slashed'd and sunder'd.
Then they rode back, but not
Not the six hundred.

titans to right of them,
titans to left of them,
titans behind them
smashed and roared;
Storm'd forth with death's knell,
While horse and hero fell,
They that had fought so well
Came thro' the jaws of Death,
Back from the mouth of Hell,
All that was left of them,
Left of six hundred.

When can their glory fade?
O the wild charge they made!
All the world wonder'd.
Honour the charge they made!
Honour the scout Brigade,
Noble six hundred!

So, this an adaptation of Alfred, lord tennyson's poem, with some bits replaced by me. Personally, I rather like his poem and thought it seemed very fitting. Both the soldiers and scouts were using swords, facing an extremely strong enemy and bravely charging forth before returning thoroughly decimated. Hence, I decided to just stick this together.
