The drum - excerpts from the Atharva Veda (5, 20)

The lion roars for joy during the chase
    expecting the food
The bull bellows for joy battling the yearling
    expecting the heifer
So does the drum whet the voice of the hero
    entering the battle expecting to win

Even when the rules are known and advantage enjoyed
    victory is uncertain
    but loss is yet unreasonable to expect
Having played well, prepare now to gather your winnings
As a gambler holding a high hand
As a Priest preparing for what must be sacrificed
Declare your message pleasantly and clearly:
    it will resound in all directions like Indra's thunder
Your voice is counsel and strength to your friends
Songmaker!  Give us a song of victory to sing!
Winner - or loser - you will gain honor in this fight
Like a drum, you inspire heroes to success
Even if beaten to pieces!

So now call forth your heroes
And with your friends gathered
Lead us all to honor!
