孔子诗经 -- 硕鼠

穷人被富裕又有权利的人剥削在几千年前就存在了。孔子在他的诗经上有一首诗《硕鼠》,讲明这点。

硕鼠

硕鼠硕鼠,无食我黍!
三岁贯女,莫我肯顾。
逝将去女,适彼乐土。
乐土乐土,爰得我所!
硕鼠硕鼠,无食我麦!
三岁贯女,莫我肯德。
逝将去女,适彼乐国。
乐国乐国,爰得我直!
硕鼠硕鼠,无食我苗!
三岁贯女,莫我肯劳。
逝将去女,适彼乐郊。
乐郊乐郊,谁之永号!

Big Rat

Big Rat O Big Rat, eat no more our millet!
Three years we have fed and kept you alive, yet not a care you shown us.
We swear that we’ll leave you, to look for that Paradise.
Paradise O Paradise, thereupon the only place we can stay!

Big Rat O Big Rat, eat no more our wheat!
Three years we have fattened you, yet no kindness you have given us.
We swear that we’ll leave you, to look for that Paradise on Earth.
Paradise on earth O Paradise on earth, thereupon the only place we can depend!

Big Rat O Big Rat, eat no more our seedling!
Three years we have nourished you, yet no gratitude from you we received.
We swear that we’ll leave you, thereupon to look for a happier plain.
Happier Plain O Happier Plain, where none will groan and whine!
