“The night is chosen, men of war come over the hills. They whistle and hum, making violence their priesthood, conferring death upon unholy men. I can see them, can you see them, these legion of savages running wild? We make ghosts, they make ghosts. See the spectral lights upon the hills, see the big birds, bringing big hurt to mongrels walking as if they are men? Men live and die in their firefights. I can see them, can you see them, their numbers increase all night long and it never ends….”~Michael Kurcina
