Poem: frogs



In an emperor’s tomb

comeseetheChingemperorinShenyang

lies Mao

on the face of the hundred yuan note

Mao looks pinkly

the Chinese people lift themselves through energy

out

tombinTienanmen

and dedication

wild horses

against Japan

and Chiang

long live theEmperor in the Forbidden

long live the farmer who stood up


a thousandgrayapartments

60,000newcars


in a green university

frogs croak at dusk

bats swerve


and energy


now Mao

in Tienan men

sleeps the revere d


sleep


of Emperors
