Samurai etc


won't lie

why  try

to be a Samurai

warrior  not worrier

who wants to die


like a ronin

 zone in 

& out

without doubt

I have a shoji screen

a paper fan

to hide behind

disguise myself

if I  want to go unseen

don't like fighting

prefer to win

 have no sword

only metaphorical

you have my word

I practice kanji


there in the air
