His most devoted weapon is a blade.
He has faced many royal guards
and has spilled much of their blood.
Kings see him but don’t hear him jump,
but before long they hear screams.
Treacherous, corrupted, filthy men’s screams
are heard as a sign of the wrath of the assassin.
Kings prefer to run and jump
over the balcony before facing his blade.
He has seen more traitor’s blood
than honest, trustworthy guards.
Muslims, Romans, Greeks, and many others have been guards
but not too many have heard the eagle’s scream.
The only way to have faith is to be an assassin
who is willing to spill the blood
of others with their sacred weapon, a hidden blade.
To be a killer is a step; to be an assassin is a jump.
To take a jump;
Is to take the life of a guard
with the bloody blade
that will be used to make others scream
the nightmares of the assassin.
The only rule is not to spill innocent’s blood.
To take an innocent’s blood
is to take a dangerous jump
without seeing the consequences. An assassin
is a protector of the sacred and a guard
for the people. Innocent’s screams
are what they don’t take with their blade.
Once the hidden blade
spills a king’s blood
people’s fear or happiness is heard upon their screams.
To take a life, they jump
from building to building, staying unknown to the guards
but royal to the brotherhood of assassins.
The blade is out; they make the jump.
To spill the blood of a treacherous guard.
An eagle’s scream is the symbol for the kill.
