To Become Gods

Their nation imperiled
Surrounded by enemies
The inexorable tide approaching
With a shout

Their nation cried out
Begging them to sacrifice
Giving up the human bodies
They were to become gods
Gods of thunder
Sinking ships
With one blow
They would pull the ships under
The waves cover the bodies
And the essence of the men
Hover atop the sea

With one act they'd defend
The holy land
Of Japan
With death
