Great White

“These, in the day when heaven was falling, The hour when earth’s foundations fled,
Followed their mercenary calling,
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”.

 A.E. Houseman
