  14. 14. Feud alism Flocabulary – FEUDALISM I woke up this morning in feudal Japan, The guest of the shogun, that dude was the man. And even though the Emperor ruled the land, Sometimes the shogun bows down to no one, That makes him the guy to know, Elected by the daimyo.They on the farmland, where the poor peasants try to Grow crops and such, but they’re not too tough, So the samurai defend them When the block gets rough. Horses, swords and armor, Bushido, code of honor,Meant the Samurai loves his lord more than his mama. And if there was drama, They did something I’ll never do, To avoid shame or disgrace, they commit seppuku. That’s suicide, maybe not for you and I, But when you don’t fear death, It ain’t much for you to die. Many are Zen Buddhists, They don’t worry about their body; Others are Shinto, they say everything is “kami.”I thanked the shogun, he said, “No prob.” He got me. “Come back anytime for karate and kamikazes, Origami, plum sake in Nagasaki.” That’s Flocabulary, see Bully at the library.
