Whole empires fell
under his sword.
Thousands of warriors
marched and died for him.
A hundred armies
were at his hand.
Peace was kept
along many years.

The people worshipped
the roads where he passed.
He never got old.
He drowned in a river,
a treacherous stream,
trying to save a child
dragged by the water.
He was not his son,
his grandson or his nephew.
But he didn't hesitate,
not even a second.

Tears and gloom covered the land
from coast to coast.
And the peace ended.
