The 47 Ronin
Burning, burning, embers bright,
Glowing on into the night,
Glowing still all through those years,
Growing bright to guide our tears.

Smoulder on! You fearsome fester.
Smoulder deep! Vindictive quester.
Retaliation's ashes growing
To avenging flames, now overflowing.

And retribution's fury brings
An end to life of heinous kings
And quench that wasteful, latent thirst,
With ruthless fealty reimbursed.

47 Ronin day is celebrated in Japan.

Peter O’Toole, British-Irish actor, died today in 2013.
