Standing on Stone

by: Jake Arminius | Published: July 17, 2017

Across our lands
The Destroyers come
For brave men now
Stone and iron

Their efforts and achievements
We remembered and honoured
For heroism deserves
A reward

Against our enemies
They fought
Doing their duty
Honouring loyalty

A forgotten hero
Late was enshrined
In a forgotten town
Of history
Edward Cornwallis
Is his name
Halifax is the town

One deed is worthy
Of song and immortality
When the Serpent' s
Dark forces threatened
London and Civilization
Of the Isles
Cornwallis rode them down

The Scottish Jacobites
No more
Fallen and broken
In 1746 at Culloden
Terrible retribution
Was taken
Mild it was
If victory was lost

Two Titans battled
Across the sea
Britain and France
Two mighty brothers
Engulfing the savage lands
Taming and lighting
The dark and brutal

Noble savages these
Were not
Who inhabited
A Hades on Midgard
No better man
Was there?
Who defeated
Forces of the Yiddish Jacobites
To secure an inlet
Against French control
Of the mighty
St.Lawerance River

Out he was sent
To claim and fortify
Another claim
Of destiny

Arryaed against him
Were tools
Of the French
Tribes of the savage
Paid bounty
Upon the scalps
Of the British

With few resources
Too few soldiers
Defensive he had to be
Careful had to be
His actions

Bounty he paid for
The scalps of
Semi-nomads who
Drew first blood

Two hundred and
Sixty eight years later
The semi-nomad cries
Foul and loud
A false claim
Of unjustified genocide

Never enough miles
Taken with their hysterics
Even an inch emboldens
Insane demands

Reconciliation they
Scream from pulpit
Built by Europeans
As hypocrisy continues
Demand for responsibility
For a lie
Continues foaming

Those that raised them
From mud and darkness
Shall still owe them
For a deed they
Instigated and
Long dead

Now they come
For stone and iron
A long sixty and eight
Years before
Was built a reward
From the sweat
The Canadian European
Supports them
Stolen from our backs
By corrupt parasites
Given to the ungrateful

After our
Stone and iron
Flag and flesh
They shall come
Holy Confederate land

Already besieged
Stand on stone
Claim the destiny
Our ancestors
Paid for
Let no more monuments
Fall too
Savage destroyers
