Scolding The Abusers In Turn Is Like Burning Their Own House!


O’ girl with glistening broad eyes
...more beautiful than the flower!
If the persons who can’t tolerate the abusers,
...who had hurt your mind painfully;

And if these persons retorted by scolding
...the abusers in turn with their tongue,
it is like the capacity to burn
...their own house with fire!

Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
