Mo Gao
EMPRESS DOWAGER TRUMP

When he said
“America first!“,
when he said
“No-one understands better than I“,
when he said
“Drink disinfectants to cure the virus!“;
when he withdrew from even more groups and assemblies,
when he put even more business and people from China
on sanctions lists;
I saw a shadow behind him,
of a dowager empress from the Qing dynasty.
I was thinking,
shouldn’t I remind folks in America,
but
wouldn’t they think I had idle concerns?

特朗普太后
莫高

当他说
“美国优先”
当他说
“没人比我更懂”
当他说
“喝消毒液可以治病”
当他宣布退出更多的群
当他把更多中国人和中国公司
纳入制裁名单
我在他身上看到
清朝一个太后的影子
我在想
要不要提醒一下美国人民
那么
他们会不会觉得我操空心

FINALLY!!!

十一月 8, 2020

FINALLY! !

Finally!
The people have won.
Decency has won.
Democracy has won.
Hope.
Some people
may feel they have lost.
In the end, the land,
the country, the world
if the world can win,
most people will feel,
finally,
for once,
there is a beacon.

WHAT?

What am I?
Where are we?
We are on earth.

What am I?
What are we?
What can we do?
I can be a tree.
You can be whatever grows
or crawls or flies up from the earth
and the wind and the rain.
We can all come again
and do what we can.

Some people did what they could
for a while
and Obama did
and it wasn’t enough
change to go round
everywhere in the end.

But yeah, we can
do it again.

HÖHLENRETTUNG – THAILAND CAVE RESCUE

八月 2, 2018

THAILAND CAVE RESCUE

In Thailand
12 boys were saved,
and their trainer.
They had been locked in a cave
by rising water.
A whole football team.
Some were refugees from Burma.
In Europe
in the Mediterranean
it’s not allowed now
to rescue people.
They don’t actively kill
refugees
but they let them drown.
And all the media,
well, it depends what they say.
Interior ministers
are very happy.
But maybe they have
something similar
somewhere some time
in Asia.

THAILAND CAVE RESCUE 2: AUSTRIA

In Thailand,
12 boys
and their young trainer
are rescued
from a flooded cave.
They were 11-16 years old.

In Austria,
a 14-year-old gets shot dead
from behind,
after breaking
into a supermarket.
Another one also gets shot,
survives and gets put on trial
as fast as possible.

And all the big papers
are very fast
on the side of the shooters.
Old enough to steal,
old enough to die,
they chant unisono.
The provincial governor,
some say he made up that song.

The killer
who ran after the boy
and shot him from behind
from very close
was put on trial
more than one year later,
but just for a little.

He knew the boy’ s mother,
they all knew each other
in the poor quarter
of the small town.

The killer lied,
of course they all lied,
said they were in danger,
so he had to shoot.
Actually of course,
the boys were unarmed.

All these details
came out at the trial.
Anyway the killer is still on duty.
Eight months on parole.
No way for the mother
to sue any further,
to get any money.

Some green- leaning left- leaning weekly,
maybe a few other reporters ,
some people didn’t shut up.
So there was a trial,
but he’s still on duty,
and it could be worse,
without truth or trial,
just self- defense,
what they all wanted.

It could be in Austria,
in many places.
Maybe also in Thailand.

HÖHLENRETTUNG I

In Thailand
werden 12 Buben
im Alter von 11-16 Jahren gerettet.
Sie waren in einer Höhle
eingeschlossen.
In Österreich
wird einer erschossen
mit 14
von hinten
auf der Flucht
wegen Einbruch
in einem Supermarkt.
Noch einer wird angeschossen
und schleunigst verurteilt.
Und alle großen Medien stehen
sofort auf der Seite der Polizei.
Der Provinzgouverneur sowieso.
Der Todesschütze ist weiter im Dienst.
Aber vielleicht gibt es das auch
in Thailand,
unter der Junta.

HÖHLENRETTUNG II

In Thailand
werden 12 Buben
im Alter von 11-16 Jahren gerettet.
Sie waren in einer Höhle
eingeschlossen.
Ein ganzes Fußballteam.
Manche sind
aus Burma geflohen.
In Europa
und im Mittelmeer
dürfen Flüchtende
Männer Frauen und Kinder
nicht mehr gerettet werden.
Sie werden
zwar nicht erschossen,
man lässt sie ersaufen.
Und alle großen Medien
naja vielleicht sind nicht alle immer
auf der Seite der Grenzpolizei.
Die Innenminister schon sowieso.
Aber vielleicht gibt es das auch
anderswo.
