Saw Wei said:

Arensberg said:
Only once you have
experienced great pain
And madness
And like an adolescent
Thought the blurred
photo of a model
Great art
Can you call it
Millions of people
who know how to love
Please clap your gilded
And laugh out loud.

Then Saw Wei was put in jail for two years.

The first letter of each of the lines in the [translated] Burmese poem esoterically criticize the head of Burma's military junta leader, General Than Shwe, by reading something akin to 'General Than Shwe is crazy with power'.

[Please clap your gilded hands]..
