“The Uniform Was a Lie” (poem)

A brief poem based on the bonus episode “Extra Chapter On Edo” included with the Blu-ray release of “Hakuouki Hekketsuroku.” Koundo-san awaits execution. Hijikata speaks with Souji for the final time. He doesnt tell him.

That little boy spark

in the eyes of a dying man

All I wanted:

For him to grin

that impish

pestering smile

and live forever

Meaning every risk

each lie worth taking;

Should he know the truth

could even Souji understand?
