A Funeral for a Friend
Ethan Gartin

The air was suffocating,
Hot beyond reason.
Tokugawa watched the burial of his companion,
His ally,
His friend.
Many years had passed since their childhood,
And Tokugawa reflected on these events.
During his time as a hostage of the Oda clan,
He grew close to Oda Nobunaga,
And he gave him the highest respect.
Nobunaga’s death left behind many lands he had conquered;
He was a powerful adversary
As well as a great partner.
Tokugawa uncomfortably shifted in his position.
He bowed his head in honor of a fallen hero.
