POEM TRANSLATION ECHOES 423

POEM TRANSLATION ECHOES 423

 

 

LAW OF JUNGLE

(森林法則)

 

cling and crouches high

緊貼和蹲高

on other tree canopy

在其他的樹冠上

slowly strangle host

慢慢勒主干

 

roots snake down to soil

根蛇落土壤

tango and twist along trunk

探戈沿著樹干彎

sucks out food supply

吮食出飼養

 

survival supreme

生存力至上

fittest are not the fairest

合適不是最公平

wind on winners’ right

风奖利胜者

 

seeds fly by rare chance

種子罕飛揚

fair to the impoverished

公平贫困者

strangler, not sinner

杀,无罪人
