As dusk faded into the blackness of the field,
Shadows flickered around summer nights,
Flashing, the forked skies.
The blackened patterned trees, inflicting themselves,
Amidst the nights ether.
Sects dancing insanely around enchanted fires.
But unbeknownst, a figure watches, clocked in obscurity.
Sacrificial flames toss around evil sorcery,
The evil ones death incantations.
Time, then it happens.
Somersault spinning, shuriken flight,
Sword in motion and nunchakas assault.
The fight happens long,
But one by one evil ones disappear, dead.
He emerges victorious, the avenging, deadly, stealth-like, dune ninja!.
