Powerful men are advised not to use violence

For violence has a habit of turning on itself

Thorns and weeds grow where armies tread

Lean years follow a great war

A general is well advised

To achieve nothing more than his orders

To not take advantage of his victory

Nor to glory, boast and take pride

To do what is dictated by necessity

Rather than by choice

For even the strongest force will weaken over time

And then its violence will return and kill it
