WHICH SIDE ARE YOU ON

Half a year ago
when the trumpets sounded,
someone asked me,
then no-one asked anymore.
Now these few days
things have changed quite a bit.
Today in the canteen
someone asked me
that same old question.
I said I stand
on the side of justice.
He started to laugh,
as if I was making
a joke.
Actually when
you’re shoveling rice,
spitting out “justice”,
how could it sound real?

你站在那一边
起子

半年前
战争刚打响
有人问过我
后来没人再问了
这两天战局
发生了很大变化
今天在食堂
有人又问了我
这个问题
我说我站在
正义一方
那人立刻笑了
看起来我好像
是在开玩笑
事实上
当你扒拉着米饭
嘴里吐出
“正义”两字
怎么会像真的?
