聪明人和傻子和奴才

                                                                                                      -鲁迅

奴才总不过是寻人诉苦。只要这样,也只能这样。有一日,他遇到一个聪明人。

“先生!”他悲哀地说,眼泪联成一线,就从眼角上直流下来。“你知道的。我所过的简直不是人的生活。吃的是一天未必有一餐,这一餐又不过是高粱皮,连猪狗都不要吃的,尚且只有一小碗……”

“这实在令人同情。”聪明人也惨然说。

“可不是么!”他高兴了“可是做工是昼夜无休息:清早担水晚烧饭,上午跑街夜磨面,晴洗衣裳雨张伞,冬烧汽炉夏打扇。半夜要煨银耳,侍候主人耍钱;头钱从来没分,有时还挨皮鞭……。”

“唉唉……”聪明人叹息着,眼圈有些发红,似乎要下泪。

“先生!我这样是敷衍不下去的。我总得另外想法子。可是什么法子呢?……”

“我想,你总会好起来……”

“是么?但愿如此。可是我对先生诉了冤苦,又得你的同情和慰安,已经舒坦得不少了。可见天理没有灭绝……”



The Wiser, the Fool and the Slave

A slave just wanted to tell other’s about his grievances. He only wanted to do this and just can this. One day, he met a smart man.

“Sir!”said he sadly, his tears trickling down from the corner of his eyes.” “You know that, my master treats me like dirt. What I only eat was just a small bowl of gaoliang husks, even the dog and pig will disdain it.”

“That’s a wreched thing,” the wise man said with pity.

“Isn’t it?” the slave said excitedly.”My work is restless: I carry water at dawn and cook supper in the evening, I ran errands on the streets and grand the wheat at night. I wash clothes when the weather is fine and hold an umbrella for my master when it’s rainy. I fire the the heating stove in winter and keep cooling for my master with a fan. At the mid-night, I also need to boil the white fungus. I wait on te master at his gambling table. However, I never get a tip and sometimes I also get a thrashing.”

“What a pity....” the wise man sighed with his rims a litter red as if he were about to shed tears.

“Sir! I can’t put up with it any more. I have to make other ways out. But what can I do...”

“I think, you will be gone through sooner or later....”

“Really? I hope so. However,I feel better after you have given me sympathy and encouragement after litening to my grievances. It can be seen that the god still has justice.”
