Poem by Joseph Staten
With any great epic war, there must be epic literatureand it seems that humanity at the time of the Covenant war still feels that deep human urge to write poetry.
This poem comes straight from Bungie's Joe Staten. He posted it to a forum on behalf of this "26th-century poet", which is rather helpful, as the unborn usually have difficultly using e-mail. The poem isn't horribly difficult to decipher (but if you spot something in it that you think deserves attention, by all means, speculate away); nonetheless, it's very cool.
