Yutang Lin

Stirred up antagonism, created enemies on a wide range,
To secure safety of life built up multiple layers of guards.
Even though on high throne with power over the world,
What could be the pleasure in light of self-imprisonment?


Stirred up multitude's emotions, intensified antagonism, thus created foes on a large scale over a wide range, and resulted in lack of peace in daily life. Even though powers in grasp, constantly worried about murder attempts, cornered within multiple layers of safeguards, isn't it imprisonment? Causal consequences of actions and intentions would not be mistaken even in minor details. Plotted for profits in disregard to justice, one could hardly expect end of such jail sentence.
