When the battle begins…

When the battle begins,

the spears shall pierce,

Blood shall flow,

some shall be maimed,

Horses shall be slain,

The ground shall turn red with blood,

and the sky red with fire,

some faces red with victory,

some black with paleness,

Swords shall be stained,

some shall slice themselves blunt.

Bows shall snap,

Arrows shall twang’,

Carts shall collapse,

Valuables shall be lost,

Captives shall be taken

and leaders will be overthrown.

For all these,

we’re ready and well prepared.

Armed to tooth, we lie in wait,

for the battlefield-drummer’s signal,

to saddle battle-wise sword-first.
