The message arrived from the Shogun.
It was an order to execute a man found guilty.
So the samurai set off for the
town where the convicted man dwelt.
He sat at the town's edge
(so as not to cause a disturbance)
and patiently awaited the man to appear,
which he did.
The samurai approached and drew his sword.
The convicted man, see what was about to occur
started scraming abuse at the samurai.
He called the samurai's mother terrible works
and added insult to obscene insult.
Realising his reaction
the samurai sheathed his sword and walked away.
