It takes a second to get into the flow of the story and understand the meter of the speech, but once that was down it read beautifully. It was like a moment stolen straight out of Jack's memories, like a story he might tell aloud to someone (including all the little exagerations and side-stories that he might meander down). I was particularly pleased by the last paragraph and his intentions of plundering Elysium if that's the way he goes when he's dead. Bravo! This was a great one-shot.
