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... 

A TRUE MARTIAL ARTIST IS A KILLER WHO DOESN'T TAKE LIVES...
