The Wrath of the Awakened Saxon by Rudyard Kipling


It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late,
With long arrears to make good,
When the Saxon began to hate.

They were not easily moved,
They were icy -- willing to wait
Till every count should be proved,
Ere the Saxon began to hate.

Their voices were even and low.
Their eyes were level and straight.
There was neither sign nor show
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not preached to the crowd.
It was not taught by the state.
No man spoke it aloud
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not suddently bred.
It will not swiftly abate.
Through the chilled years ahead,
When Time shall count from the date
That the Saxon began to hate.

Those dudes in the pic better form up their Shield Wall pretty quick, before the Normans slaughter them.

Ah, and will the jihadist hordes heed this warning, or die in their tens of millions in the nuclear holocaust they seem so anxious to begin?

What is the black "claw" in the top left corner?

Yeah, don't we wish. But I'm not holding my breath.

ghost: that claw belongs to a soldier of Kragon, Third Emperor of the Arachnid Galaxy, Ruler of All That Crawl Upon the Land and Swim in the Sea.

Advanced parties were scouting Earth as far back as 1700 and the main war party is descending on this planet as we speak.
