The Bleak Pacific 1

At moonset, before dawn  
a thick mist spreads all over    
the fleet made of 20 boats        
with straw-made scarecrows    
sails toward the enemy’s camp    
     
The soldiers    
shout and beat drums    
to fake an attack    
the enemies are tricked    
shoot arrows toward the target    
soon the scarecrows      
get more than 100,000 arrows    
     
The story of the Three Kingdoms    
Zhuge Liang borrowed arrows    
with thatched boats    
made the Pacific Ocean grow  
more and more sorrow    
     
Zhuge Liang is my ancient hero    
wish I were the soldier    
the drummer too    
always admire his halo
