( A Stormtrooper Ballad )
"The first action of the Section Campaign of the Clone Wars was a massive surprise attack by the Eskaladani Karhassi, popularly known as the EK's, a species from a twelve-system federation in the 1230 Section. Their attempt to establish a beachhead for invasion of the Empire in the Cossen's Planet system, a small, newly settled mining colony on the periphery, was only frustrated by the heroic self-sacrifice of the unprepared defending forces, led by General Anvard Di.
"Terms of the peace treaty ceded the Cossen's Planet system and Borligan to the Eskaladani Karhassi in return for control of the four-system Dantooine Section."
from A DIPLOMATIC HISTORY OF THE EMPIRE
Near the little town of Landing damndest town you've ever seen
The first-in of the colony, and layin' like a rug
On the biggest lode of precious ore a miner ever dug.
The EK's came outsystem out of Section Twelve-three-oh.
We chased 'em through perim defense. We matched their snubs with TIEs,
We lost our flagship VALOR, and they lost their VICTORY.
We hit 'em hard and solid with our walkers' heavy guns,
"We're sending reinforcements," came the answer, "Hang on, Friend."
Then the sergeant called the Numbers, and he said, "For what we are,
"The man who wants to turn tail now, " said he, "Go on and run."
Well, the EKs heard that answer, like the General meant 'em to,
They pulled their snubs outorbit, and they gutted all their crews
The EKs laughed; they hardly noticed just a single blip,
So everything the EKs had set down on Landing-town.
It's fall on Cossen's Planet now, and all the trees are brown.
