Disclaimer - Lucas owns Star Wars, Stover wrote Traitor

A/N - Ganner is probably my favorite Star Wars EU character. This is a poem commemorating his death at the end of Traitor.


I've been running from this moment since I learned to run

I've been trying hard to be a decent Jedi and a faithful son

I can't destroy my pride so I pushed it deep within

I thought it was the only way I'd win

But now as I stand in the path of the Vong

I see that this is the place where I belong

To take this arch, to pass by me

You won't be fighting with the man you see

You'll be fighting fears and fighting pride

Fighting a galaxy that always lied

You'll be fighting hope and the death of dreams

Fighting a galaxy that isn't always what it seems

Send your thousands and we'll start a dance

I know that I'm not standing here by chance

Can't destroy my pride so I'll let it loose

I knew that someday I would find its use

I don't have to be brave, I just choose to pretend

In a dance with the Force, I begin to transcend

Send your thousands to the one who fled

I'll build a fortress out of your dead

You'll be fighting fears and fighting pride

Fighting a galaxy that always lied

You'll be fighting hope and the death of dreams

Fighting a galaxy that isn't always what it seems
