The Chinese Emperor’s Ubiquitous Fears

Source: Echoes In Exile

Although they proclaim,
We’re brethren and alike,
Part and parcel of the motherland,
Yet to this day, no Chinese leader
Has ever had the warmth or courage
To walk freely, unescorted
On sacred Tibetan soil.

Delving deeper I realise, there’re fears
All over the Chinese empire.
Dreaded and deep-seated.
Here and there. Ubiquitous.
Fear of the iniquitous past
And the enemies created.
Fear of the victims tortured
And uncertain future reprisals.
The rulers feared by the people
And the people feared by the rulers.

And for rulers with bloodied hands
What disconcerting fears Tibet summons.
For a start, there’re fears
That have a physiological basis.
Tibet’s cool and rarified air
Uniquely suited for Tibetan lungs,
Differentiates the Chinese
And the blood in their veins.
Oh! What an irony for the Evil empire.
Chinese leaders fear the Tibetan air.
Fear for their lives, sudden gasping breaths and death.

There’s more to the Tibetan landscape
Than meets the eye. The towering ranges –
Pure, white and majestic.
Fierce, massive and mighty guardians.
Patiently waiting to avenge
The deaths, destruction and desecration
Wrought on its innocent earth.
Chinese leaders ever suspicious
As all Chinese in Tibet tend to be
Fear for their lives, sudden gasping breaths and death.

For the world, Tibetans appear
A race forever smiling,
Reflecting the sun’s abundance
On their beloved homeland.
But for the Chinese emperors
An outing in Lhasa could turn
Into rioting mobs and disaster.
Chinese leaders ever suspicious
As all Chinese in Tibet tend to be
Fear for their lives, sudden gasping breaths and death.

The Tibetan underground,
Supported by the people
Thus never penetrated.
Remains a puzzle for the Security.
Where? Who? When will they strike?
It’s all guesswork for the P.S.B.
Chinese rulers, cowards that they are
As all Chinese in Tibet tend to be
See an assassin in every Tibetan  face.
Fear for their lives, sudden gasping breaths and death.

Chinese people and leaders especially
How thoughtless and ruinously naive
To think, in these times and age
The Snowlands spirit can be shattered.
The Tibetan spirit’s non-physical,
Ungraspable and immortal too.
I guess it’s time for you to make amends.
To do a Gorbachev or two.
Evil rulers, if you fear for your lives
How stupid of you not to realise
Tibetans too have lives and loves
And lands worth dying for.
