The boys have paid the price
Only to be punished twice.
As fragile eggs which the wall doesn’t spare,
They represent the tyrannised who can hardly care.
While the mob jostle to bury the truth,
The System hunts and jails their youth.
Through the New York Times and the Guardian,
The Reuters and the CNN,
The world gobble up with a pitying sigh—
Briefly before the gossip and sports glue our eyes.
Whilst still on my hiatus, I cannot afford the diligence to polish my delivery, nor the luxury of visiting all you dear friends out there in the virtual world, I nevertheless feel an urgent need to call for your attention to our city’s downturning destiny, as epitomised by today’s unreasonably revised ruling upon student leaders Joshua Wong, Nathan Law and Alex Chow.
