Got the final lines in my head yesterday and just put it down.
Don't have much to say about it, except it's fictional. I imagine it being read aloud at the funeral.
Here's to the unsung heroes, and their sacrifice.
[15 May 2011] EDIT: I think I'm ready for some critique on this now.
A eulogy like this is of course an incomplete portrayal of the individual. What is your impression of the warrior described here?
What is your impression of the narrator?
Are any passages awkward or unclear?
Is the rhyme scheme effective or heavy-handed?
