Satanic Serenades

Sunset upon a Shinto shrine

Red sun descends into the brine

Black Dragon stirs from endless time

Painted words, reverberations

A warriors shadow cast across a history sublime

The dojo still, susurrous echoes

Trickling stream upon a mountainside

The mountain on the rock

Bamboo chutes encircle, carry running life

The essence of Chi, surrounding, reflecting

Ascending gradation, prismic evolution

A candle flame flickers in the darkness of mind

Or the apple of the eye

Breath upon the black flame within, feeding passions desire

A steady beat, a rolling choir

Eye of The Beast, according to each

Opens to the eye within

Preparation, Meditation,

Awakening, release!

The dojo wakes, force unleashed

Gather strength and seat of wisdom

Array of warfare presentation

The scents and sounds of combat time

Ignites the  flesh and mind

Art of martial knowledge flow

Discipline, skill, & serpent strike!

Sensei speaks, Shidoshi teach

Code of Honor, integrity of might is right

Psychological, biological, mastery of will

Complimentary integration of the arts & styles

The Ninja holds the secrets to the wile and guile
