Really nice Matt, really nice,,,


The blade, elegant
Slicing through the sweet, warm breeze
with a precise hit.

Gold for the merchant, silver for the maid;
Copper for the craftsman, cunning at their trade.
Good! Laughed the baron, sitting in his hall;
But steel---cold steel---shall be master of them all!
