When Blake Fell

Post by thunda »

Welcome weary traveler I hope your trip was fine
Perhaps some entertainment to pass away the time.

And if you have a credit for you a tale I’ll tell
A tale about the day that mighty Roj Blake fell.

With grim determination a weapon in each hand
On a world called Gauda Prime Blake would make his final stand.

Twelve pursuit ships three cruisers from flotilla four
With fifteen hundred troopers hard to the core.

“Surrender,” they shouted, “there’s no place left to run
You’re completely surrounded and hopelessly outgunned.”

But Blake was a legend made of sterner stuff
“Come on,” he roared, “let’s have a go if you think you’re hard enough.”

Plasma bolts erupted lighting up the night
One man alone against the Federation's might.

When the dust finally settled and the smoke had all cleared
Blake was still standing on a mountain of the dead.

The Feds were relentless empires never yield
Wave after wave of reinforcements stormed the field.

His guns both crescendoed like a symphony of death
A song survivors heard until they took their final breath.

Hours passed or maybe days his weapons finally failed
Then he charged into that ebon mass and fought them tooth and nail.

His last words were only, “I’ll see you all in hell.”
And then it was over Roj Blake finally fell.

Some troopers were relieved some did celebrate
But I bet those b*****ds won’t forget the day that they faced Blake.

So there you have it traveler my little tale is through
Surely worth a credit maybe even two.

Now I know it's past time for you to be upon your way
Perhaps I’ll share another tale if we meet again some day

That's great! :D

If you can suggest a tune that would fit with it, it could be performed as a filk song :)

Thank you! The song that was in my head was Charlie Daniels Band — The Devil Went Down to Georgia :D .
