BattleReaver's Remembrance

On this hill I make a stand,
Though the enemy rings me ‘round.
I swear to stain the very sand.

As blood from war abounds
I raise my sword to clang my shield,
My battle cry rings full sound,

And loose my ax more foes to kill.
If assault me here they dare,
I ride on battle's angry hard thrill.

Let those who'd live beware.
A berserker rage engulfs me now.
I'm the cause of widows who despair.

Before my body dies many more will bow.
I sing my death song, with a love of life.
Skald's remembrance I thus endow.
