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 causeThey are expendable -

"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...
