Whew!! Ok, lets see... first time... alright:

They are named many things,
ronin, mercinary, ninja, soldier of fortune, the hired hand
in it for great treasures like rings
some of us just don't understand

They're lives are tough,
never ment to love,
exteriors rough,
raining bullets and knives from above.

Heartbreakers, life takers, making money when they can
they walk the light and dark,
they are tyrants, saints, and the man
stand against them, HAH!! what a lark

An ode to the mercinary
