On The Birth Of His Son Poem by Su Tung-po

On The Birth Of His Son

Rating: 3.1


Families, when a child is born
Want it to be intelligent.
I, through intelligence,
Having wrecked my whole life,
Only hope the baby will prove
Ignorant and stupid.
Then he will crown a tranquil life
By becoming a Cabinet Minister.
