In the cube

In the cube battles are fought. Lives are lost. It's an ancient war replica. Replicated are the numbers of lives lost. Soldiers lose their mind. And also a lot of fun... for those with nothing to care about.
It's called The Cube because of the topology of that bit of space made the war debris form a cube.
On board of the entrance complex,in the great hall, soldiers swear the faith for which they fight. With chins up they repeat the commander's words:
- WE SWEAR TO KEEP ALIVE THE FAITH THAT MADE US BE!
Silence... the commander takes a look and leaves. As he outed through the great door,the soldiers behind him with a fluid and coordinated motion put their hands on their crotches and shout:
- WE ALSO SWEAR TO COME BACK HOME WITH OUR JEWELERY INTACT!
Laughs reverberate. The commander came back and shouted:
-INDEED, I FORGOT ABOUT THAT.
