"Why do we fall, Master Bruce? So that we can learn to pick ourselves up."


I’m going to get
Silkworms for the emperor.
My mission is clear
To me, the lowly servant.
I think I will run away.

The author's comments:
I was assigned to write a Tanka for Lit & Comp. and I was inspired by the history class lecture about the Silk Road and ancient Chinese culture.
