The Heavenly Light (A)

E-mail Print PDF

Following the blood and tears of February Twenty-Eighth,

The earth’s grievances in we breathe,

The Gods’ light emerges as the Formosa Sun,

Though it can make the demons of imperial colonialism no where to escape but dawn,


Devils in powdered masquerade,

To the righteous and honest Formosan do they deceptively persuade.


Into the Red Tide and an ocean of blood Taiwan sinks,

The Hell’s Gate finally becomes the modern Three Direct Links.

Direct flight turns into a cruise ship of evil.


Among the dizzying darkness and thickening mists, the first gleams of morning light appear.

Holy mountain,

‘Tis our only hope: to build the Holy Mountain.

A spokesperson for former president Chen Shui-bian’s (陳水扁) voluntary civilian medical team, Janice Chen (陳昭姿), said yesterday that she was prohibited from visiting the former president after an incident involving Next Magazine on Jan. 30, unless she signed a recognizance vowing to not disclose any information beyond what strictly pertains to his medical treatment.

The online version of Next Magazine, published on Jan. 30, featured 28 seconds of footage, provided by an anonymous reader, showing Chen Shui-bian’s right hand trembling, that his expression seemed vacant and that he had trouble talking.
