Default Penal Legions

Somethings that was buzzing in my head right after reading toffster's poems...
Well, here goes...

“For the Emperor” they say
And would remind us day by day
“For every war that we enter” they'd also proclaim
Is an opportunity to expunge our shame

Guilty by the smallest treachery
Whipped for the act of heresy
No excuses, no mercy
Forgiveness, is but a memory

Civilians, war heroes, no exceptions
Grab a las! And take up positions!
For this is the life in the Penal Legions
A life, full of endless retribution

Default Awesome!

Dude this is seriously great!

Are you going to be doing a story based on this? This would be an awesome chant for a penal legion and I'd love to see more of your work!

Sorry to say but no... Until I finish writing the trilogy of Warhammer 60,000... I won't be writing any other fluffs... But short poetry such as this, is an exception...

I just don't want to get distracted... Mainly because my story has already five subplots... So that's like writing five stories and merging them coherently, so to speak...

But you gave me an idea...And maybe I'll include a Penal Legion in my current story(which is still in the process of being rewritten...)

So thanks for the REP mate and I can't wait for the next installment of Seven Shades...

Cheers!...
