    They can't kill us all.
    Break a man's spirit and
    he will fall.
    Destroy his will and his
    desire strays.
    He has seen better days.
    He has received better praise.
    Take away his strength and his
    courage becomes fear.
    Remove him of sight and his
    vision becomes clear.
    Imprison his body and his
    mind will escape.
    Disfigure his focus and his
    form will change shape.
    His life is a constant swim
    in red tape.
    Denounce his religion and he
    beomes a congregation.
    His simple situations are a
    complex complication.
    Murder his faith and he becomes
    a one man mob against GOD.
    Trade him from the team and he
    becomes the entire squad.
    Force him into a corner with his
    back to the wall and he will brawl.
    They can't kill us all.

    I owe you a tremendous apology, I saw this a minute ago and just didn’t get around to reading it but I am real glad I didn’t miss it completelycause it is very insightfully done, actually I guess I owe myself an appology for it would have been my loss. For real this is classic work and I very much enjoyed the read
