游泰山 (yóu tài shān) (English translation)

游泰山

远看泰山黑糊糊,
上头细来下头粗。
如把泰山倒过来,
下头细来上头粗。

Visiting Mount Tai

Looking at Mount Tai from a distance - A big black thing,
The top is thin and the bottom is thick.
If one turns the mountain upside down,
The top is thick and the bottom is thin.
 
Thanks!

And if you do it with a lung, it looks like a tree, so a tree gives oxygen, and a lung absorbs it... 🤔😄

That was the humor of Zhang Zongchang, a warlord and famous doggerel poet!
