Ten wiersz: Epitaph On An Army Of Mercenaries — Poem by Alfred Edward Housman przetłumaczył Konstanty Ildefons Gałczyński jako Epitafium dla armii najemników.

These, in the day when heaven was falling,
The hour when earth’s foundations fled,
Followed their mercenary calling
And took their wages and are dead.

Their shoulders held the sky suspended;
They stood, and earth’s foundations stay;
What God abandoned, these defended,
And saved the sum of things for pay.

KIG kończy frazą „i ocalili świat za żołd”.
