“Strange is the world
Why should men receive life in this world?
Men’s lives are as meaningless as the lives of insects
The terrible folly of such suffering
A man lives but as briefly as a flower
Destined all too soon to decay into the stink of flesh
Humanity strives all it’s days to sear it’s own flesh
In the flames of base desire
Exposing itself to fate’s five calamities
Heaping karma upon karma
All that awaits man at the end of his travails
Is the stench of rotting flesh
That will yet blossom into flower
It’s foul odor rendered into sweet perfume
The life of man
- Evil Spirit - Kumonosu-jo (Throne of Blood)
