The Sui Palace
The pleasure-seeking monarch toured the South at will.
Who dare alert him in the ninth celestial sphere?
People were forced to weave brocade through the mill
But half was used as mudguard and half as sail too dear.
Note:This is another satire against the last emperor of the Sui Dynasty（隋炀帝）who forced people to weave brocade for his carriages and ships and punished with death those who dared to alert him.
