Song Tik-lai 宋澤萊

FAREWELL TO THE 20th CENTURY

Thank you, 20th century 
We all grew up some time with you 
I was born and grew up too 
In your arms I feel at home 
In your last year 
You are generous 
To set me free

One hundred years 
Two world wars 
Cold war east-west 
Countless other wars and conflicts 
I don't have much experience 
I carried my gun 
Two years military service 
Thank heavens 
I stayed alive

One hundred years 
One economic depression 
America's streets full of beggars 
Some nations went hungry 
Russia and China adopted 
Communism 
I have only shallow experience 
When I was small 
There was no rice 
But there were dried sweet potatoes 
Thank you 
I didn't stay hungry 
Although malnourished

There was political tragedy 
Military dictators 
Even governing through terror 
Countless people 
Went to jail 
Wailing was heard on 
The earth's every corner 
I have limited experience 
Held and carried 
Flags and banners 
Walked in streets 
Of silent protests

There was art in various ways 
Dadaists and surrealists 
Stream of consciousness, expressionism 
Existentialism, postmodernism 
Baffling and shouting, collapsing 
Suicide and going crazy 
I don't have much experience 
Still at my desk 
With simple words 
Writing my poems

I went to Grandpa's grave 
One hundred years of graves and mounds 
Thousands and millions 
Buried simply 
Left in the 20th century 
Wrongs and grievances abroad 
I don't know much and beg your pardon 
I went through this time 
And stayed alive

20th century 
I don't count as your victim 
Listen, century 
I'm not qualified 
To raise my voice 
In blame 
But begging your pardon 
At night when the Milky Way blazes 
Raising my head 
I often think of 
Flying away

宋澤萊告別二十世紀

感謝二十世紀
庶呢長e時間
予我會凍出世、生長
值妳e懷中我感覺有歸屬
最後e這年
妳寬宏大量
予我離開

一百年
有兩遍世界大戰
東西冷戰
無數e大小戰爭
庶我嘸是攏有體驗
幹擔八揭搶
做二年e兵
感謝天
我平安度過

一百年
有一遍經濟大蕭條
美國滿街攏乞食
有人民大飢荒
露西亞、中國實行
共產主義
我e體驗真淺
幹擔值囝仔時代
無米通食
但是,猶有番薯簽
感謝
我無飫著
雖然有卡欠營養

有真濟e政治悲劇
軍人獨裁
甚至恐怖統治
有算朆了e志士
入監牢
哭聲值地球e 
每一個角落
我e體驗無深
幹擔八揭
幾遍旗仔
值街仔路
恬恬抗議

有真濟藝術
達達、超現實
意識流、表現主義
存在主義、後現代主義
迷惑、喝喊、瓦解
自殺、起犭肖
我嘸是攏有體驗
猶原值桌子頂
用尚簡單e字
寫我e詩

我八去阿公埋骨e 
百年大墓仔埔
歸千歸萬人
埋值土腳
亻因值二十世紀留落
外濟e委屈
原諒我嘸是完全清楚
我猶原值世間
繼續活落去

二十世紀
我假那 ​​受害無夠深e 
世紀
無資格大聲
責備
但是,原諒我
值夜晚銀河燦爛e時
揭頭
我不時道想卜
飛離開妳
