A Samurai Ode to Stigma.

Tide of explicit hate 

Distressing stigma dialect

Illicit skin hitch hiker

Half face freckle

Bullied wart


Silence in droves

Awareness Succumb 

Wake between worlds

Where wild things dwell

In the forest of dreams

Upon shores of sleep

Beyond ronin times


Tide of illusion 

Overwhelming odds

Illicit skin hitch hiker

Buried flesh parasite 

Hollowing the mind

Infected via stigma

A painful crime

To survive


Slices of silence

Succumb to the edge

Blade from folded bones 

Steel words cut the wrists

Held down by conformity addicts

Their stigma is a social crime

Unto a walk'n chalk outline 

Oh citizenry usurper 

In ronin times 


Beyond tongue's ronin times

Social class stigma designation

Miracle vocal chord of acceptance

Peers forgot to usurp personality

Illicit white jackets burned

False signature relapse

Welcome home

Bushido lost
