INTERLUDE FOUR. The Burden of Command.
All the soldiers say
“It’ll be alright,
We may make it through the war
If we make it through the night.”
All the people, they say:
“What a lovely day, yeah, we won the war.
May have lost a million men, but we’ve got a million more.”
All the people, they say.
Welcome once again to Friday, Marsers. Hope your week is ending well. Here in Chicago, we find that Eddard Stark was right.
We are proud to bring you a new Interlude piece this week. We’ve previously gotten candid views of our three bandmates in repose, so we thought it would be appropriate to do something similar with their “benefactor.” Here we get a glimpse of our revolutionary commander post-battle. The skirmish is over, wounds are tended to, and Kessler lights one up.
The text also gives a hint as to the storied history of our commander. We learn something of his military experience, earned during his stint as a mercenary. I will say, I’d personally love to hear more about the Rim Wars and Sigma Draconis….
We’ll stick with the mellow track theme of our previous Interludes. Portugal the Man- ‘People Say’.
In other news, we got another amazing couple entries into the reader art competition today. I think we’re ready to get the illustrations (and photo) up on Monday. So, you have until Sunday night to get your piece in.
