On the Birth of His Son -- Su Tung P'o (1036-1101)

Wonder how they can concentrate under the withering glares of Washington and Franklin?

Families, when a child is born
Want it to be intelligent.
I, through intelligence,
Having wrecked my whole life,
Only hope the baby will prove
Ignorant and stupid.
Then he will crown a tranquil life
By becoming a Cabinet Minister.
