This morning the news shocked me with their word.
Apparently some ninjas are terrorizing Pittsburgh.
First a duo of sword wielding ninjas robbed a gas station
taking cash, cigarettes and lotto tickets as their "donation".
Then another slashed 11 cars and tried to stab a man.
When confronted with a gun though, that ninja ran.
Yet another man who left his little boy alone at home
says his ex was sitting while he went out to jog and roam.
Furthermore, his ninja-like-get-up was no costume at all.
This was just a running outfit he picked up at the mall.
The cops are keeping the "non-ninja" for questioning.
I hope his capture brings the others to their reckoning.
I wouldn't want kids to start thinking ninjas are mainly bad.
I've always associated them with honor which made me glad.
Thankfully the "Ninja Watch" in England is doing their part
to show that many masked men and women are still pure of heart.
May the bad guys see you protecting your future King and Queen
and vow not to be like those who might cause a wedding scene.
