POEM TRANSLATION HAIKU 222: LOFTY LIES

 

 

    LOFTY LIES

(傲慢的謊言)

 

lofty lies on right

傲謊于人

trade opium for tea, silk

鸦片商為茶酒绸

damned if defeated

击败被咒駡

 

plunder and pledges

夺和承諾

bleed, betrayal and back stab

血流、背叛及背刺

bullies take their bite

欺凌取其咬

 

prosper or perish

繁盛或滅亡

money, muscles and moral

金銀、肌肉和道德

spare spoiled sons of soil

兒壤被弄坏,
