It is time to release the unlucky chapter of my poem. Enjoy! People just getting into the story or who have missed the previous sections can find Part 12 [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=40220772]here[/url], and the other parts in the Flood Library sticky. McGee now found his whole army Trapped 'gainst the city wall, And if he could not get them free The New Flood would soon fall. His troop's morale was fast waning, They would not hold out long. English and Blimper were gaining And would soon prove too strong. McGee and Blimper stood opposed, The world stopped in silence, And with the day nearing its close McGee now did commence. "Blimper know now your betrayal Was carried out in vain. The gods shall reward the loyal, To traitors they'll bring pain. We placed in you the greatest trust, But now you seek to prove That you are worth less than the dust Trampled 'neath th' horses' hooves. You'll have the time to consider All of your actions well, And this moment you'll remember As you burn in the hells!" This gave McGee's soldiers courage, And they sent up a cheer. The Old had lost an advantage: The New had no more fear. But Blimper would maintain his course, His decision was made. His actions left him no remorse, For he had been betrayed. "Your speeches shall not persuade me To come back to the New. I'll be no slave t'your tyranny, Or be condemned by you. I sacrificed my family To aid your foolish cause, But even my best strategies Could not redeem your flaws. The traitor lies not on this side, And I swear to my death, That from my wrath you shall not hide 'Til you've drawn your last breath." As the armies began their clash, McGee and Blimper fought. The arms sounded a might crash, Their fervor failing not. Though McGee's wound had still not healed He fought with all his might. He'd no intent to quit the field Until the come of night. Blimper had seen an opening. His spear pierced through the air. But his strike accomplished nothing, For McGee was not there. In retaliation McGee Struck toward Blimper's heart. But the armor he did not see Broke McGee's spear apart. If his soldiers'd not intervened His death would be certain. But since his generals there had been, He had escaped again. The armies were called back to line To end the second day. Still no side had prevailed this time, And so they both would stay. The sun continued its descent Into the horizon. And as night fell, all those present Knew who'd this battle won.
