Under the searing gaze of the sun god Rumda

did I march my army

my army of ten thousand

Before me fled the people of the land

The harvest lay withered on the threshing floor

Figs shriveled unpicked on the trees

Dust piled high in the homes

Homes where only jackals and foxes now live

Even these fled before me

before my army's might

I crossed the harsh wasteland

to the edge of the world

to Eretria by the sea

That nest of vipers

Home to the Dwellers  the Old Ones

Defilers of the land
