Here you will find the Poem On the birth of his son of poet Su Tung-po

On the birth of his son

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.
