The Ninja of Discworld Wiki

This poem has five elegant stanzas of haiku. The honourable poet, Lin Po, composed it after respectfully inhuming the leader of a small merchant family in HungHung.

Sneaking like tiger
Along streets and through alleys
The town its jungle

Knife at the ready
Creeping slowly through the night
The ninja draws near

Pink cherry blossom
Life like full bloom of springtime
Winter approaches

Unknown to target
The ninja in the shadows
Preparing to throw

A glint of steel
Marks most honourable end
Petals blow away
