The hundredth-day sacrifice for those martyrs,
who were massacred, at Tiananmen, on June 4, 1989.
( II )
Originally, Tiananmen was an outer front gate of the emperors.
Recently, it became a political stage of the national leaders.
At once, the whole nation was shocked by the event,
As well, the whole world rendered their concern.
College students of most big cities echoed,
They too came out to demonstrate and strike.
Many people of those metropolises also came out,
To join with them and to support them with supplies.
Among those peoples, there were:
Head broken high intellectuals,
Very loyal propaganda reporters,
Guts broken little citizens,
Most favorite red class workers,
Long time faithful civil servants,
Temporarily staying official travelers;
Even hardcore cadres, high-rank cadres
And ever-obedient party-member soldiers.
They were hands in hands,
Hearts linked with hearts,
Shoulders to shoulders,
Columns followed columns.
Waves after waves,
Battalions after battalions,
They paraded through the cities
And came together to Tiananmen.
Furiously they roared!
Thunderously they cried!
“We want democracy!
We want human rights !
We want freedom and equality!
We want the rule of law, and a dignified life !
“Down of those who are on our heads!
Off of those are at our backs and sides!
Down with inapt and corrupt officials !
Down with nepotism and privileges!
Let our nation revive, people see the skies!”
* * *
“Why is it?
How could it be possible？
Suddenly they rallied up
And bold enough to make trouble!”
“These old bastards,
And small hoodlums!
They don’t know good and bad?
Forget the experience they have had?
“Have they gulped some gunpowder?
Or have taken the wrong drugs?
Have they eaten the bears’ hearts?
And grown some leopards’ guts?”
“Do they not care
If we label them with rebels?
Or lash them with shackles!
“Do they not mind
If we close them in a bullpen?
Or lock them into a black prison!
" Tell them to pack up
Their banners, fliers, placards,
And big-word posters.
“Go back to their units, schools!
Study once more and all of,
Party’s directives and principles!”
* * *
“Reform and opening up
Are already our policy.
Those of what you want
Will be not far away.
"Cold days warm up gradually.
Fruit trees grow up slowly. "
"Basically you still lash us
with dictatorship and brutality.
We are still living painfully
in terror, timidity and agony.
“Reform for you,
Is more consolidating your authority.
Opening up for you
Is wider resource of collecting dirty money.”
No one will notice it,
Even if you blister your soles.
No one will hear it,
Even if you crack your throats.
“You sit here.
No one would care,
Even if your bottoms fester.
Who will suffer,
If you die of hunger?”
"Now we are politely persuading you.
You have to open your eyes.
Otherwise we will punish you!
Lest you will rise and riot!
“Are your heads dizzy?
And, or, your eyes are blind?
“Try to think who we are!
Dare to try our iron fists and mind?”
