Beautiful Tiananmen

alt

This is tank man;

gorgeous Marianne of

that revolution.



I wasn’t born, I hadn’t lived,

but ’89 still makes me sick:


The flaming corpses, bloody, singed;

were foul cremations
of the Chinese Dream.


Now, there’s only widowed wives,

and weeping girls whose daddies died.
But soon, happiness will come.

They'll build temples, bridges... and graves

for the brave, defiant

Tiananmen.
