in my heart, the twinge
invisible syringe
wrath down a path
in my veins, revenge
a drive to strive
to bury alive
the very eyes that
would watch me die
the very hands
posed in a stance
kung fu master
but ive advanced
faster tactics and
ive had practice
ive left foes
in the finest caskets
strength of steel
but ive the will
on me embossed
the sign, the seal
even in my
final heartbeat
i have to make sure
my opponent fails
so i cast off
to see that
every blade impales
