Bai Juyi: Begin This Position of Inspector

Begin This Position of Inspector

初 授 拾 遗
奉 诏 登 在 掖
束 带 参 朝 议。
何 言 初 命 卑
且 脱 风 尘 吏。
杜 甫 陈 子 昂
才 名 括 天 地。
当 时 非 不 遇
尚 无 过 斯 位。
况 子 蹇 薄 者
宠 至 不 自 意。
惊 近 白 日 光
惭 非 青 云 器。
天 子 方 从 谏
朝 庭 无 忌 讳。
岂 不 思 匪 躬
适 遇 时 无 事。
受 命 已 旬 月
饱 食 随 班 次。
谏 纸 忽 盈 箱
对 之 终 自 愧。

Begin This Position of Inspector

Promoted by imperial edict to serve in the document library section
Cinch up my palace uniform for the dawn imperial audience.
Who said those coming into the palace to begin their new job has to be humble
For now I am above those petty officials roaming through the country sides.

Du Fu in this position held his head up high
His name and ability incorporated Heaven and Earth.
At this time he was unknown and opposed
People of this high quality are passed by for any advanced position.

My situation unlucky, had to endure the weak and thin
Enjoy and indulge this lowly position unexpectedly.
Startled being so close to the light and scenery of the Emperor
A bit of shame for I am not comfortable being in these sacred clouds.

Emperor wanted our honest criticisms
Dawn front courtyard audiences without envy or fears.
How can I not express my true thoughts
Good time to meet without any hard feelings.

My destiny to receive already these fifteen days of service
Follow the imperial schedules, stomach always full.
Suddenly I realize the suggestion box is very large and full
Eventually realized those too critical will pay a price.



Excellent summary of the life of a high official working within the imperial palace.  Probably also competently describes the current situation inside Washington DC, and other such places.
