Three Hard Weeks


After first week runs out the thin pay
With price soaring high needs growing by day
The hard three weeks hardly pass by
Bad times stay longer don’t ask the reason why!

If only the month were cutely weekly sleek
Thin as the monthly pay spread for one week
Men would have worn happily beaming face
And not waste hours on a frantic goose chase!

A month is not richer with more days pushed in
Three weeks of workload less peace more din
One week is quite fine a month of seven day
So it stay long enough make do with thinnest pay!

The purse makes a clamor drained of all strength
A month be made a week reduce the long length
Prune three hard weeks leaving a week to stay
To make men stay happy make do with thinnest pay!

    the cruelty or life being faced by the poor and the middle is well expressed here..Think about the poorest of the poor, walking beside us silently, carrying the rain clouds... (Report) Reply

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
