Do watch your step,
Must stupidity be attributed to older ones,
Or kindness to the fragile of heart?
Raise your eyes, please, and look at the going-ons in your family,
Only then might your tears seek to cease.
What a lovely wife you have,
Beautiful in all her ways,
Splendid in all her dealings!
Alas! She has turned your daughter against you,
Regaling her with stories of a couples private trials.
She has set your seed to cursing you, and treating you like the dirt of her feet!
Dear Uncle, do you still scold me for not carrying your bag,
Sometimes shake your head when I don't kneel right?
Pity is what I feel for you,
The end of your days seem as bleak as ever,
With as much fruitless work as the very beginning.
Do you not see that you have lost your way?
You lost it from the very start and are too old to be told so.
You have given the true training to another mans child,
And pampered your children to stupidity.
What do we do?
Now your wife resents you,
Your daughter hates you and your employees pity you..
