Strange, Strange

Each woman is a beauty

Why do we need Miss Universe?

Each person is a treasure for his nation & the world

Why do we need the National Living Treasure?

Each mountain is wonderful

Why do we need One Hundred Great Mountains?

Everything on earth is the sun’s heritage

Why do we need the World Natural Heritage Parks?

The sun can live Ten Billion years.

How long will Japan survive –

Nobody knows.

In the public construction enterprise

Somebody makes big money

& breaks down the earth

Why do you call it public?

Stone Age Japanese never knew Atomic Energy.

Now nuclear power plants are

Poisoning modern Japan to a slow death

– Nanao Sakaki (November 20, 1999)
