APED: "watch on the rhine"

March 19th, 2009 (11:25 pm)

sireric08 requested a poem about a John Ringo story other than the Kildar series.

Okay. WATCH ON THE RHINE (written with Tom Kratman) it is.

Humans, arise! They come, the evil Posleen!
To savage us, to take our very lives.
Untarnish that which we know should be bright and pristine.
Men of the SS, the time has come. Arise!

Rejuvenate! Let fall the weight of ages.
The leftists quail. Strike their objections down.
Our history's not done; let's write the book new pages.
Let voices with "Horst Wessel Lied" resound!

Upon our collars, the lightning letters gleam now.
It's time to march! Let's show them what to fear!
True German blood will tell. Come, men! Let's show them how!
And in our wake, new Fatherland, appear!

Yes, if you haven't read it, the book is about Nazis being rejuvenated to fight aliens.

Yes, it is *exactly* like that description sounds.

Yes, this poem does scan to the "Horst Wessel Lied."

Yes, this is utterly horrifying.
