Senses

The smart warrior brings Juju to bear
On everything he does—
His eyes see everything, his nose
Picks up warnings from the wind—
His skin feels imminent dangers
His tongue tastes the sun’s heat
While acute hearing picks up
Subtle sussurations of sound—
All these things together give to him
A sixth sense smarter than electronics.
It is the way of the warrior.
