After news broke of former Chongqing Party Secretary Bo Xilai’s dismissal, @July26 Posted the photos below and added the titles and comments. Translated below by CDT.
Take Good Care, Secretary Bo.
I come from the reddest of the red roots.
I have a happy family.
I write nice calligraphy.
Everyone worships me.
This is the man who changed my life.
There is nothing I can do.
I want to cry but have no tears.
The boss does not look at me any more.
Even the handicapped look down on me.
Even waitresses would not pour my water.
I used to sit in the front row.
Now I am in the second row.
I know it was you who did this!
Only Sweetheart Huang* still keeps me company.
Grassroots officials still remember me.
I don’t want to play any more.
You people go ahead and clap happily.
I am leaving.
Away from the lens.
Life is like a dream. A deep sigh.
* Qifan Huang is the mayor of Chongqing
