      Charles, War seems to take it`s portion, no matter what. In a lifetime it is
      truly a feat to avoid war. But then you are a coward, Right?
      The Spartans would give up their marriage bed to a man of greater worth as
      a warrior. But even warriors must sleep, you cant just fuck and fight. War
      can come at night and kill you when your sword is sheathed. Were you a
      warrior with that death? Bill
