I’ve got a splinter in my lil finger
 
So I’ll need a needle to take it out
 
A sharp samurai ain’t worth a dinger
 
Unless my finger, I can do without!
 
But should one night, I meet a ninja
 
In a dark and deserted street corner
 
Having that samurai will be nirvana!
 
If I’ve but a needle, I’ll be a goner!

My way of saying, use the right tool for the job.

You might get lucky with the needle against the ninja though it's not a safe bet

I guess you wouldn't have much of a chance; you with a needle and the ninja with a sword. Great poem about common sense.
