Shi Huangdi

Ruthless and brave
Warrior and thinker
Cultural force
Burner of books
Holder of the throne
The master of the Qin
Shi Huangdi
Maker of China
Builder of the wall
Remembered in victory
The master of laws
The ruler of all
Legalism his means
Control his ends
Shi Huangdi believed
In a destiny for men
And China
The middle kingdom
Would be King
Of both now
And the future
