From the She-Ching

(Chinese classic, B.C. 1000)
A FISH in some translucent lake
Must ever live to fear a prey
He cannot hide himself away
From those who come the fish to take.
I, too, may not escape the eyes        5
Of those who cause these miseries;
My sorrowing heart must grieve to know
My country’s deep distress and woe.
