In that and all things will we show our duty.

Yes sir sir sir
We have been commanded
Duty bound
Honor bound
Binding in an even tighter knot
With a shorter and shorter lead.
Our will is not our own
Our selves, subsumed in what we are meant to fulfill.
This is what it means to serve:
To disappear
To show nothing but duty
To wink not
To argue not
To question not
To wrestle not
To do as we’re told and make
A show of our obedience.
