Epitaph for a war hero

The Guru sent this out last night, as the last words for a (fictional) hero who happens to be a contract worker:

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

Now all I have to do is write a book to go with it . . .
