At the gate to the tombs there are jujube trees; - They should be cut away with an axe. That man is not good, And the people of the State know it. They know it, but he does not give over; - Long time has it been thus with him.
At the gate to the tombs there are plum trees; And there are owls collecting on them. That man is not good, And I sing [this song] to admonish him. I admonish him, but he will not regard me; - When he is overthrown, he will think of me.
