Dead the Hand was a song of unknown authorship. It talks about Hakram, describing him as capable of defeating anything. This was proven to be appropriate when the song was sung, as Hakram killed the Baron of Dawning Day in single combat, taking only about as much time as the song itself to win.
"Dead the hand and dead the man,
Sharp the blade and sharp the fang.
For no matter how tall they stand
When iron rests we see them hang.
Lord or priest or knight in pale
On burning hill or dawning vale
The scales settle it all the same;
Red and broken lies the name
Queen or king or Heaven's get
Never unpaid goes their debt
Learn bitter with the last breath
The left hand only gives death
