Charge of the Light Bridge

With apologies to Tennyson. BOLL deserves some blame for inadvertently causing this.

Half a klick, half a klick,
half a click, even further
Into the unnatural formation
Drove the Chief and Cortana.
Forward the Warthog!
"Aim for the grunts!" he said;
Into the unnatural formation
Drove the Chief and Cortana.

Forward the Warthog!
Were the marines afraid?
No, but the soldiers knew
the Chief's driving was crazed.
Theirs is not to make reply
Theirs is to reason why
Theirs is but to scream and die.
Into the unnatural formation
Drove the Chief and Cortana.

Jackals to the right of them,
Grunts to the left of them,
Elites in front of them,
Wort-worted and taunted;
Stormed at with grenade and plasma
Boldly they drove through the miasma
Into the jaws of Death,
Into the unnatural formation
Drove the Chief and Cortana.

Flash'd all their pistols bare,
Flash'd as they turned in air,
No-scoping the Covies there,
Charging an army, while
All the forum wondered:
Plunged into the plasma-smoke
Right through the line they broke;
Jackal and Grunt
Reeled from the pistol bolts;
Shattered and sundered.
Then they drove back, but not
not the Chief and Cortana.

Grunts to the right of them,
Jackals to the left of them,
Elites behind them,
Wort-worted and taunted;
Stormed at with grenade and plasma
Fenders burning molten magma
They had fought with so much drama
Came through the jaws of Death
Back from the unnatural formation,
All that was left of them,
but not the Chief and Cortana.

When can their glory fade?
O the wild charge they made!
All the world wondered.
Honor the charge they made,
Honor the Light Bridge brigade,
Noble Chief and Cortana.
