幽默的轮回(双语)
 
幽默的轮回

嗨。我是包可华
我刚刚死去

他的话还没说完
我便听到一声响亮的婴啼

嗨。我是包可华
我刚刚出世

附记:美国幽默作家包可华(Art Buchwald, 1925-2007)才咽下了最後一口气, 纽
约时报的网站便播出他生前预拍的录影带,告诉喜爱他的读者说:「嗨。我是包可
华,我刚刚死去。」

THE TRANSMIGRATION OF A HUMORIST

Hi. I am Art Buchwald

and I just died

no sooner had he finished his words

than I heard a baby’s cry

Hi. I am Art Buchwald

and I was just born

Note:  American Humor columnist Art Buchwald died of kidney failure on January 17, 2007. The next day the website of The New York Times posted a video obituary in which Buchwald himself declared: "Hi. I'm Art Buchwald, and I just died."
