The Martial Artist (standard:poetry, 123 words)

This is what I see as a true martial artist.

His arm was broken, 

His legs were weak, 

He had used his all, 

Long past his peek, 


His foe lay still, 

breaths short and fast, 

his life now wavered, 

He was down to his last, 


The hero stood, 

sword in his left hand, 

he still had business, 

To fulfill his command, 


He stood above him, 

sword dangling overhead, 

but he looked to the ground, 

his foe was almost dead, 


So he walked away, 

for his rival to live, 

He had done such a thing, 

His lord wouldn't forgive, 


He took up his knife, 

No need to explain, 

He slit his own throat, 

neither one died in vain...
