Patience and Rivalry
By Ethan Gartin

Ieyasu contemplated his rivalry with Toyotomi Hideyoshi,
The only man standing in his way of being
The strongest Daimyo.
If only, if only he were gone.
Power should’ve been his for the taking.
That persistent pest,
That resilient wretch,
I will crush him!

But then he remembered patience;
Patience was all he needed to win.
That fool was in bad health, and his campaign in Korea
Would surely bring his demise.
So Ieyasu would wait,
Wait for the perfect time to cement authority.
