Chapter 53

If I possess the least bit of knowledge
I will walk the great Way
My only fear will be in straying
The great Way is very smooth
But men tend toward sidepaths
The court is very splendid
While the fields are very weedy
The granaries are very empty
While they are dressed in fine clothes
Carry sharp swords
Stuffed with drink and food
And have costly goods
So-called robbers piping
This is not the Way indeed
