DOGS OF WAR LOOSENED:

Our Dream Team didst today loose Dogs of War

Our mighty foe the Immortals now be truly sore

A joint assault with Renegades DT didst carry out

War cries and VICTORY calls we now jubilantly shout

Regent Bourbs didst lead from accustomed place

Far behind the lines where could monitor the race

Our War Jester Androlian led from the fore

Whilst keeping notes to report for the days of yore

Thousands of knights and troops marched unto the battle

Facing similar amounts of Immortals screaming for us to rattle

Bravely our cavalry thundered forth across the gory field

Knowing that the enemy must this day to yield

Swords were keen and sharp, gleaming in the sun

Our archers didst let fly flurries to join in the fun

Clear eyed, eagle sharp, they loosed their murderous barbs

Straight, and true their shafts flew many hundreds of yards

Immortals didst first try to meet us head to head

But soon their bravery was truly put to bed

As our Fiery Dragons didst drop bombs of dung

An Immortal stench caused enemy nostrils to be stung

Explosive decaying odors were cry of the day

As Kraken and dragons came from out sun’s rays

As enemy troops didst begin their stomachs to wretch

Our masked infantry their lives didst sally forth to fetch

By the hundreds corpses fell where soldiers had stood

It soon became obvious for us the day was good

Our War Chief didst indeed plan the lay out well

Mapping out our way to ring the victory bell

At end of day we lost hundreds of brave men

Yet Immortal death toll amounted to ours times ten

Soon this horrific war shall come to a timely end

Our triumphant troops then shall homeward wend

Lt Reed R. Wright, Castle Guard
