A haiku wrapped in a tanka inside a limerick

Two kids who were studying history
About Okubo “champ” Toshimichi
Found his varying ties
To ye old samurais
To be more than a bit of a mystery

You Promised You Wouldn’t Do This

Cheeks red, eyes bleeding
Saltwater ribbons, clenched fists,
Stomp and fall to bits
And scream and flail on the ground,
Leaving is the hardest part
