RE: RE: KLBC vaj bom

Whoops...  I accidentally sent the previous message prematurely...
Here's the completed message:

d0H!!  momentary lapse of unKlingon thinking.

Warrior Song

I am Klingon.
I am a Warrior.
Strong and proud am I.
I wage war for honour.
If I should die in battle, then
I win the ultimate reward.

My blood cries out for honour
And my blade cries out for my enemy's blood.
It pleads to me to feed it,
So I must comply.
They will teach me to act honourably.

I live for duty.
My purpose is clear.
My courage strengthens me
So that I can defeat my greatest opponents;
To the death!!

We are Klingon.
We are Warriors.
Strong and proud are we.
We wage war for honour.
If we should die in battle, then
We win the ultimate reward.
