1.Wu Sangui.What can be more successful than this
2.An Ugly Woman at a Nightclub.Why don't you rape me

Wu Sangui

Even if you are full of zeal
Even if you are full of wit
Even if you sail with the wind
Even if you rack your brains
Everything is vain
Everything is a joke
However, whether born under a bad sign
Or the times to produce heroes
Or a time of national peace and order
You can all put your name in history
What can be more successful than this

(Note: Wu Sangui, a famous person of being full of contradictions of China history)

An Ugly Woman at a Nightclub

She is woodenly staring at men

The men shut their eyes to her

The raging fire is burning in the hearth

Why don't you rape me

I am a self learner. I like philosophy and poetry from an early age. After work, I got an undergraduate degree in Chinese language and Literature through self-study exam. But my English is very poor.

What is the world? This is obviously a sharp question about a ugly woman. If you have to ask what is the answer? I can only say: helpless.

I don't think there is an ugly woman, sorry this is offensive. And I would not write about an ugly man either.

Dear Carol Roach,
What is the world? This is undoubtedly a very general and sharp real problem. In theory may there is not a really ugly person, but the reality is it? And why is this so? Actually I am also very entangled.

I am only going to ask you this, what would you do if that ugly woman was your mother, wife, sister or daughter, would you rape her as you have a vengeful head and a kniving freaking dick that is dreaming of raping a woman???
We have a potential rape suspect here, he has spoken his mind out and possibly has already raped women and caused grievous bodily harm to females whom his distorted mind thinks are ugly. Ugliness is your mindful perception but poetry is feeling from the heart.
Thank you for sharing the fact that you are potential rapist with a dubious mind ready to classify a female ugly and that you want to take control by sexually violating her.

Never want to see your darn face on this planet as you are a threat to the female population as such and do as a favour, leave the natural habitat and go to an island and live out there alone and die out there because we females don't need a SOB like you around us. I speak for the whole female population of the planet.

THANK YOU RAPIST - you need a shrink to counsel you.

You are no self-learner but a man who is training to be a rapist or a criminal and using Wikinut as a source and outlet to gain a potential victim for your sadistic sexual satisfaction.

I am sure your mother would be proud of you for giving birth to such a son like you and your father for giving you the treatment and development training to voice this publicly.
You need help. I am not Carol to be polite or Shiva to be a sadistic bloody idiot (what do you expect when he is the hyena of Stupid Rose LoverME) to be polite to such connivance and advancement to sexual crimes and negativity.

Dear Lady Aiyanna,
I hope you consider the issue from this angle: they, the beautiful girls are surrounded by a lot of men,but they,some ugly women may be that no one shows any interest in them. Why do people have this attitude? The poem's intention is just to let people to ponder this problem. Of course, this might be an exaggeration, but it may also be the need of art.

Dear Lady Aiyanna,
That everyone has different view is obviously very normal thing, this is the freedom of everyone. But I think saying harsh words are better than saying lie. I wish you find your own life coordinates.

I think I understand the ugly woman. You are saying that she is not attractive either by societies standards or maybe even her own. And the men don't see her like they see the "beautiful" women around her. Even though she is unnoticed she still has the desire to be wanted. She still has basic needs..... And she is like if you won't look at me with affection then at least look at me for a moment. Sorta like she's saying just love me for a second and in that second make me feel like u want me, fool me.
That's Deep. But rape is a very touchy subject for women. And your poem could also come across as saying to some, since she is not wanted she wants to be raped. Poetically it's ok to express, but of course in real life rape is never ok. But I can't lie I liked it. It's the kind of poem that either pisses you off or makes you think.

Dear Aim,
I am very grateful to you for your comment, and very much praise for your appreciation. To tell the truth, this exchange is more important than anything.
I have changed the title of the poem as " An Ugly Woman at a Nightclub", which is more convenient to understand. Yes, the central idea of this poem is mainly to reflect on why many men like beauty but don't like ugly. The other is that ugly can't meet the desire and lead to resentment. Of course "why don't you rape me" can understand as "why you don't like me" Also, I want to know that such a poem in your country is not unique?

Well, I don't think I've ran across a poem that puts truth (even uncomfortable truths) out there quite like this. But I'm sure there are poems like this out there. The thing about poetry sometimes is, that it can be interpreted many different ways. Sometimes you can interpret a poem in a totally different way than the author had intended. I am in fact guilty of doing that. I once (not too long ago) read a poem and got very offended. The way I interpreted it was different than what the author had meant for it to mean. Sometimes when you read things on a page it doesn't come across the same way as it would if you could hear it read out loud. I hastily fired back at the author of the poem without rereading or any further analysis. When the author responded to me they were very offended that I had said something and that I misunderstood the whole concept of the poem. All I can do is laugh about it now but I did feel badly for being so hasty in my response and not rereading it. It taught me something though, it taught me that you shouldn't get upset over another person's poetic expression. The beauty of poetry is that if it's good it has the power to move you. It can move you towards seeing the beauty or it can move you towards seeing the ugliness. And that you shouldn't be hasty on condemning someone's creative expressions. I see this poem as one of the good ones because it too has the power to move people. And maybe it does move them towards seeing the ugliness, and invokes anger. But take it from someone who was recently taught a lesson, reread the poem and open up your mind a little more and try to see in what other ways this poem can be interpreted. Good poem.

Obviously,there would are one hundred Hamlett in one hundred audiences. This is just the key to literature, and thus the literature can be full of energy. But no matter what, as long as your works can move people they must be good works. Thank you for your sincere comments again.
In fact, I'm a very lonely person in china. I always hope to achieve the highest academic and artistic attainments by the most sincere one's real feelings. There is no doubt that my poems is very unique in China, so I very much hope that can find bosom friends from the world, so that I am no more lonely. May I take the liberty to ask one thing? Where are you from?

I most like the five celebrities: Sima Qian (China ancient historian), Darwin, Locke, Roosevelt, washington. These people have two things in common: the objective truth and the broad mind. Also, I think that poetry also need to have such a vision, as these great men, No matter they are in any place in the world, or any time in history, will be loved by people.
To tell the truth, I prefer to communicate with one here. This website is not suitable for publication of professional works, because it can not realize their value.
