->These, in the day when heaven was falling,\\
The hour when earth's foundations fled, \\
Followed their mercenary calling, \\
And took their wages, and are dead. \\

Their shoulders held the sky suspended; \\
They stood, and earth's foundations stay; \\
What God abandoned, these defended, \\
And saved the sum of things for pay.

->Occasionally, Uncle Sam needed something doing in a place where Uncle Sam shouldn't be, and you answered your country's call... or anyone else's country, for that matter, [[OnlyInItForTheMoney so long as the money was good]]. The mercenary's creed: In Gold We Trust. You maid some fun friends, too - you can call in favors from tinpot generals and two-bit dictators from Cambodia to Columbia, and you have [[{{Blackmail}} enough dirt on the great and the good]] back home to ensure a peaceful retirement if you ever get old and tired.

->So what's wrong with being a mercenary? Is your war worth fighting? If it is, then why does it matter who fights it for you? Aren't we imbued with the righteousness of your cause when we take up arms for you? Would you rather your own men and women died to make the point? And if your war is so noble, so necessary—why aren't you fighting it for yourself? Think of all that before you spit on us, ''aruetii''.
