GUILE


They have oft come to me
Seeking exotic mystery
In Sharath, they know their place
But in the North, they manipulate
As well as any Dhe'nar


Who can resist a willing slave
For that is what we tend to crave
In Sharath, they bend a knee
But in the North they necessitate
To be equal as any Dhe'nar


Many have I come to take
Their former lives to forsake
In Sharath, they run or fight
But in the North their favorite trait
To go willingly to any Dhe'nar


Some have come to be fulfilled
The guile of bastard lust instilled
In Sharath, such acts are stilled
But in the North, they associate
To gain favor with Dhe’nar


By whip and blade we carry out
Service through pain, leaves no doubt
In Sharath, they live with dread
But in the North they appreciate
To gain status with Dhe'nar


I find them useful for many a thing
But never with a wedding ring
In Sharath, just property
But in the North they demonstrate
Their importance to Dhe'nar


-Tah’lon Vorrith (Talinvor)
