Karate is a Lifelong Pursuit
Be guid the day an mair lik gowd the morn
Never a kata perfect, a block as fine
Nothing is etched perfection.
Some decades o training
later what is basic
You spy as a helix o wonders.
Aches bought in Dunfermline or Inverness
Pencil to slate and gravity to kicks.
Mind, noo though
Mak karate servant nae master;
Life an hert come first
Or all can be force withoot finesse.
Guid-good, mair-more, lik-like, gowd-gold, hame-home, withoot-without
