We are all in the Museeeeeee

每次天災人禍
在新聞中看到一幕幕令人亢奮的片段
(亢奮都因為看著新聞從業員100% on guard成為我們的生活焦點)

奧運
被藏獨殺個措手不及
藏獨
又怎會料到被地震震到不知去了那裡
新聞焦點其實已決定了大部份人對政治對社會的態度
在唔知幾多萬的死難者面前
大家竟不好意思提唔知幾多萬活生生人民的生活
老細甚至預示
七、八月號月刊可以照樣出光芒四射的奧運
到了那時候, 誰還會理災情?
我想, 除非又有餘震和疫症

較抽離地看這些事
不代表不傷心不捐錢不祈禱
只是我相信較忽然悲天憫人的好
也不是要搞另類
但看到個個都以此為題在專欄大花淚水
挪用人家的慘劇彰顯自己的同情心/填了個專欄抖份稿費
還是最喜歡兩人的句子:
關--不需要過份感同身受, 悲傷是不能夠讓其他人明白, 也不需要被明白, 捐錢就夠, 我們自己還有自己的生活
張--愛國愛民容易, 因為他們都是早上起來沒有口臭的, 都是完美的, 所以比我們身邊的人可愛
後者還提到一個在四川募捐攤位旁的乞丐---是沒有人理的
悲劇每天也在身邊 (附送Musee des Beaux Arts詩一篇)
四川事件後
有誰在理會緬甸的災民
天光墟還每天有人在買過期肉
地鐵出口每天還有等報紙拾紙皮的阿婆
愛遙遠的人容易
關所說「有自己的生活」
便是在我們身旁還需要關懷的人
親人,及咫尺範圍以內的人

Musee des Beaux Arts -W.H. Auden

About suffering they were never wrong,
The Old Masters; how well, they understood
Its human position; how it takes place
While someone else is eating or opening a window or just walking dully along;
How, when the aged are reverently, passionately waiting
For the miraculous birth, there always must be
Children who did not specially want it to happen, skating
On a pond at the edge of the wood:
They never forgot
That even the dreadful martyrdom must run its course
Anyhow in a corner, some untidy spot
Where the dogs go on with their doggy life and the torturer's horse
Scratches its innocent behind on a tree.












"The Fall of Icarus" By Breughel

In Breughel's Icarus, for instance: how everything turns away
Quite leisurely from the disaster; the ploughman may
Have heard the splash, the forsaken cry,
But for him it was not an important failure; the sun shone
As it had to on the white legs disappearing into the green
Water; and the expensive delicate ship that must have seen
Something amazing, a boy falling out of the sky,
had somewhere to get to and sailed calmly on. 1940

或者,首先得愛自己。
