Nanjing étude 2 untitled (Even the sun’s days are numbered) by AGG & 王梵志

Even the sun’s days are numbered;
Why not write songs to dying stars?
For protection you buy bonds, pray;
Bankers, morticians, priests just smile.




Untitled Poem
by Wang Fanzhi
(Translated by Eugene Eoyang)

No one lives past a hundred;
Why not write immortal rhymes.
Forge iron to fence off evil—
Demons just watch: clap hands and laugh.
