生魚引起的恐慌 Panic Caused By a Fish

Translated by Ping kwan Leung  


"The Fish, originated from China
Propagated in American Lakes
Has caused panic among the residents
The Ministry of Internal Affairs announced
This aggressive atrocious fish
Has to be banned from import

"How appalling, such aliens
Firm-jawed and sharp-teethed, big-mouthed and greedy
Look evil too
Exactly the Frankenfish from the movies
Probably would gobble everything in the American lakes
Probably would gobble everything in America

"How appalling, such monsters
Finishing off all there is in the water
Perch on land with their fins
It's creepy
How do we know they won't devour American houses?
How do we know they won't devour American cars?
This is definitely not the American eating habit

"How appalling. How do we know
They aren't spies from the enemy camp, sent to collect
Intelligence under our horizon
Spread rumors of corporate fraud
Set off time bombs in markets
Unsettle the hearts of simple sincere citizens
Corrupt people's moral, cause divorce
And ultimately seduce our people into believing pagan gods?

"How appalling. Evidences prove
These gluttons seriously affect our recreational activities
The livelihood of commercial fishing; they must be seriously dealt with
The Minister of Internal Affairs announced, Ban on Import
People traveling with the Fish will be jailed for six months
Customs will confiscate the Fish and their eggs
Eradicate them for good, drive them to extinction, in short

"Officers in Maryland
Are consulting scientists to exterminate them
With plans to poison the lakes
Put out promotional ads, TV programs and athletic uniform
Everyone passing through customs would have his shoes checked
The military cancel their vacation to await order
Nuclear weapons, as rumor goes, will be deployed if necessary

"How appalling. We've to maintain
The purity of our lakes, dignity of our great nation
We've to eradicated these aliens that seriously threaten our ecology
Threaten our beliefs
While the enemy is spreading rumor to confuse our hearts
We have to deal a head-on pre-emptive blow
Declare war on the Enemy at all cost!
Declare war on the Fish at all cost!"
