Missteps to the Battlefield

The enemies surround me
I see them on all sides
The descended shadows, but a memory
The flames though, still burn

Prohibition
When one has not realized the change of state
Leads one to,
Exacting, disasterous, inhibition

Do not let your guard down around the barbarians
They will always collude
An ally in the ranks is a hope
An envoy from the battlefield

Do not neglet his position
As he has staked himself out for you
Remember him, as he slides back to the fold
And always keep an eye for the gracious barbarian
