Arrow In The Knee

I used to be an adventurer like you
Traveled as far as I could see
I wielded weapons that were true
Till I took an arrow to the knee

Someone stole my sweet roll
There was nothing I could do
It was only a sweet roll
What does it matter to you

From Solitude to Riften
My blade cut through many a draugr
Trying to save everyone
From the farmer to his daughter

Now I'm just a NPC
Working for the city guard
You'd think my life was easy
But it's really pretty hard

Now I face fierce dragons
Wielding non enchanted steel
Wearing flammable armor
I'm telling you, it's unreal

Yeah I used to be an adventurer like you
Till I took an arrow in the knee
Someday it could happen to you
You could turn into a NPC

I've been warning you since the beginning
All it takes is an arrow to the knee
Your life could be ending
You could turn into a NPC

You could turn into a NPC

Unless you play Skyrim, this poem will make little sense to you. Suffice to say there are a lot of references to the game.
