“Ninjas of Love”
The night is black.
Ninjas are, too.
If you were a samurai,
I would fight you—
Quick like a cat,
And silent like a dove,
Swinging a sword of passion
And the ninja stars of love.

My love for you is like ice cream and mustard:
No matter what you do, it just doesn’t work.
When I look into your eyes
Everything gets creepy and I throw up.
