A poem about a suicide bomber, compelled by religion to bring fire (that is, a chest-strapped hydrogen explosive, capable of taking out anything within a 2-km perimeter)upon the 'demons' (Covenant)

The demons are upon us; sweeping our soldiers
aside like wheat and rye; with their scythes

The days are upon us; the judgement is at hand
the testing has begun; held in the eyes of God

Women may weep, cry; misery and pity engulfing
one's mortal heart; green with sorrow

But the day is upon us; us the misguided
children of God; to defend what is right, sacred

Forsake not the duty; that has fallen upon your soul
spirit arises to meet; the oaths that one has taken

Rise, men, meet the demons of the void; rise, men
with fire cleanse the world; bring death upon the shades

Rise, men, rise, forsake your mortal self; stilt
your fears, heaven awaits; for with sacrifice comes

Hold the weapon close to your heart; take care
let the demons take you; bring fire when the time is
at hand.
