Kazuo Sakamaki, waka

Kazuo Sakamaki was a naval officer of the Japanese Imperial Navy. 

Sakamaki-san wrote this waka while being in prisoner-of- war camp.
I came to know about him while doing research for my next story, in which I plan to explore the idea of being a Japanese vs. being simply a "human".

Many people today not content with being simply human. All over the planet. People in need of brain transplant. Not happy unless they are killing or destroying.
