This song is sung by the people of Antislar to call upon the 6th Century hero Daerdhum, who liberated the Plains of Antislar and the city of Antis during the Second Orcish War in 578 aS.  It recounts how after the war, the hero Dhaerdum continued to battle the Remusians, vowing to not stop until the barbarians were completely driven out of formerly held Antislar lands.  Fearing a renewed war, the King of the Antislar people, Burkess, negotiated a deal with the Remusians to betray Daerdhum and deliver him to the Ice Tribe.  Daerdhum was taken back to Remusiat, the capital city of the Remusians, and executed by "splitting" where the victim is tied upside down, legs apart, and the executioner uses a sword to cut the victim in half from "groin to gullet".

The song gained popularity during the Third Orcish War in 814 aS.  It remains popular today, and is often sung by children.  It serves as a reminder that Daerdhum is said to return when his people will need him most.

Daerdhum was a hero,
A tragic figure also
He fought for us
He bled for us
Betrayed out in the snow

Brukess was the King
A ruthless ugly thing
Betrayed the man
Our Hero man
Left our people yearning

Given to the Ice men
His fate decided then
He died out there
Alone out there
Away from all his clansmen

But when our lands are barren
We’ll call upon the chosen
He will return
To take his turn
And kill all the Remusian

I'm no poetry critic, but this seems good to me. Though I can't get the image of "splitting" out of my head...thanks for ruining lunch!  buck

Use the force, Luke.

And if that doesn't work, try switching it off and back on again.

Uhm... I had it there untril about an hour ago.:P  Though, since Septimus ditties are in Misc and they are songs, I thought this would be better placed here.  If needed, I can push this back to the Library.

We're working on sorting that. One of the (many) reasons that Sordoc's poems were kicked into the Library.
As a rule though, and I'll get to the Septimus things the next time they show up:
If it is a book, story, song, or bawdy poem? To the library!
If it's about any of the above (book, collection of any others) it may have a place in misc.
If it has something to do with a tradition or a framework of that sort can be build around it, it might belong in misc.
And don't forget to ask!

That said, we need someone with enough time on their hands to occasionally peek into the Library, dust things off and flog the next bunch of literature (and since this includes the works of Septimus and Sordoc I use the term as loosely as possible) off with a blarrow.

This looks fine to me.

Ah, okay.

As for that last item of advice.... Ask any of my exes... my philosphy has always been to beg forgiveness rather than ask for permission. :)

EDIT following your edit:  Thank you for the blarrow.

Sordoc the Great would be happy to share the Greatness that is Sordoc the Great in such an undertaking as this as it will enable Sordoc the Great to pass some of Sordoc the Great's greatness onto the good folk in the Library of the Compendium.

Sordoc the Great would therefore demonstrate the greatness that Sordoc the Great possesses.

Many thanks

Sordoc the Great
Poet
Interpretive Dancer
Blower of Own Trumpet
Non Romantic lover of Paxen
etc and so forth and so on.

The Problem with poet, is how do you know it's deceased?
