Collateral Damage

As long as our heroes survive
Let the hoards perish
What do they matter?
They are simply collateral

No monuments shall be built for them
Nor any songs written in their praise
Just another number to be counted
Just another name to be forgotten

Mere pawns to be sacrificed
In this, our noble cause
They are expendable -
Extras in this real-life war movie

"It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets." ~Voltaire

Surely, there's got to be a better way...
