Episode 6: “Morning” by Plague & Dharma Initiatives at Novorossiysk, Russia, 2020.

Ten warriors decided to cast lots;

Left in the trap, who will die first.

No way to stay alive;

But no one wanted the sin of suicide.

The lot fell to old general who was so kind;

Stab him in the neck, and then there were nine.

«Be quick! Who’s next?» asked the mate;

The lot decided everything, and then there were eight.

The eighth endlessly prayed to heaven;

But his body fell to the ground, and then there were seven.

To die together, the twins tried fix;

Stabbed only one, and then there were six.

The sixth said, it was the best sword he has ever seen in his life;

He got a sword stuck in his stomach, and then there were five.

The fifth lived very well, but wanted even more;

In agony he died for a long time, and then there were four.

All four were destined for the same grief;

The lot fell to the King, and then there were three.

The lot fell to a woman, she has the same fate too;

Cut her throat with a knife, and then there were two.

The young warrior did not dare take a chance;

And together with everyone he was in the same place.

It’s the same trap and it’s time to cast lots. But it’s too late;

The old general had the same fate.
