Tsung We Wie Chiao - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

the Chinese bard went to
Mountain Tao Tsung Long
wanting an absolution
for his malfunction,

along the grass of Wieng Ywi
his naked feet tried
to feel the vilified

took him forty days to climb
the steep steps of Wong Jeing
Shrine where the goddess of
Shing Jing Tong lives

forty days he fasted too
eating nothing but bitter herbs
and drinking only dew
until he finally died in
Fling Flong Dong

and that is the story of
Tsung We Wie CHiao
nothing much to complicate
for his simple death certificate.
