Bluffing
Ideology
A love of apology;

Conjured
From the shrines
Impromptu return signs.

Come see
Thy aged parents
Bloods and inheritance.

Come home
To the pride land
Get a bride from same sand.

Whence thou
Art gladly home,
Thy warm feet turns to snow.

Mostly when,
Thou eat the yam
By shrine or even the farm.

Going
Back to abroad
Becomes so heaven hard.

Bringing
Insanities
By the shades of grey coals.

While plebs
Rejoice the come
Of a great Prince once plum.
