豬肉的論述 Pork Discourse

Translated by Ping kwan Leung  


Canít make soup with lotus roots and pork bones anymore
Perhaps we wonít have pork tomorrow

Pig buyers said: Maybe today
Weíll boycott suppliers and quit buying pigs
Weíll line up trucks and block Sheungshui and Tsuenwan butcheries
To stop supermarkets from selling cheap pork

Suppliers said: Supermarkets started
The price war. Itís a unilateral act
They didnít offer discounts to anybody

The Democratic Party said: Monopoly
Of the meat market should be under scrutiny
Weíll make an announcement soon afterwards

The newspaper editorial said: The Democratic Party
Is muddling things up
Donít tie everything to monopoly
We have to study the structure of the pork economy

Old nannies in the market shook their heads
Big corporations kill with their capital
Donít think you can enjoy cheap pork for long
In the future
Youíll have to pay a bundle

Pigs lying in the butchery said:
The price war on pork at the present
Is a unilateral act by humans alone
Pigs should not be held responsible
