In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate
I am the captain of my soul.

Or they'd find no sign of you. Ever.

Or, fire off a pen gun flare for a no-go...droning while doing a leaders recon has its disadvantages, BTDT

But congrats to Ranger Corsentino.
