Sheathed



The knife sheathed
Wiped clean of stains
The master waits
Until the pain
Deep inside
His very brain
From the voice forces him
To kill again
The blade
Unsheathed
Requires
A body's bleed
The master kills
To pass the test
And the knife
Is at rest
Sheathed
Wiped clean of stains
And the voice
Lifts the pain.
And for a little while
At least
The master
Is at peace
Like the knife
He is sheathed
