Song: All Our Foes

(Crossing, Zoluren: 247 Moliko 353)

I have no foes, I said to me friend
Yet soon my naivety she put to an end:-

See you not the Dragonprists crazed?
Or the screaming undead that Sidhlot has raised?

Have you not felt the bite of a pirates’ blade?
Or experienced the wroth of their pitiless raid?

I laughed at her and shook me head
Those threats be gone and do be dead

She said: Friend I fear your stone cold wrong
Those threats are here and grow more strong

Suspend your disbelief and replace it with dread
For if your not prepared you’ll soon be dead

To our destiny alive we seek to arrive
We’ll struggle and strive and barely survive.

Yet all our efforts and comforts do be lost
If our foes do win, at whatever the cost.

So what say you? I did ask in hope
With these cold foes how can we cope?

She replied: Ask not me, I am no mage
To stare at the stars, the future to gauge

All I’m saying is; watch your backs
Lest some foul force unawares attacks

So I in turn do pass the warning
Friends I fear a dark new era’s dawning

Gird your hearts and guard your loves
Hide your kin and don your gloves

Face the future with a determined heart
And band together, a defence to start

Let us find the strength to fight this fight
And as one together we’ll light this night

May fortune find us blades bared and bright
With our foes well met and put to right
