Poetry #306
(published November 30, 2006)
Ninjas 101
by Robert Yoder
if i were a ninja i would have 34 throwing stars -
a grappling hook -
and a mess of those instant smoke capsules -
thats it -
a sword? forget about it -
battle wounds are all about proximity -
which of course immediately rules out shuko hand claws and fighting fans -
I may keep a pair of nunchucks lying around the house just to mess around with on a rainy sunday afternoon -
but once again I prefer to keep my distance -
of course the next logical question is why not a blow gun -
and the answer is -
blow guns are for fucking sissies -
