Don’t venture to stand in front of my chieftain!


Many opponents who stood before my chieftain,
Were defeated and killed by spear in the war field!

Hence their name is scripted in a stone implanted,
That is an honor for the valiant soldier who died!

To avoid being killed and stay in scripted stone,
Don’t venture to stand in front of my chieftain!
