292. Forever Vigilant
Diligently search for the magic, but defend against the curse.
Don' t fear to reach out your hand to all in a friendly manner,
However, be forever vigilant to defend the Raven Banner !
A wooden shield slung loosely across a brave warrior's back,
Cannot be used to defend against the unexpected attack,
And a weapon left in its holder cannot help a warrior to fight,
For the one who stands up for what is honorable and right.
An enemy who has no honor will have very little regard,
For the warrior who has carelessly let down his guard,
And the unwary, who foolishly turns his back, or his cheek,
Has opened themselves up, and shown themselves to be weak.
It is considered an honorable trait to give generously and not take,
And it is sometimes alright to bend a little, but we must never break !
It should always be the sworn duty of one and all to forever protect,
Our religion, and our Gods, from those who will give us disrespect !
