conquerors

yao feng

Among those who climbed Mount Everest
quite a few died halfway up
The survivors ascended the summit
Facing the lens, they waved a flag
let the whole world know
their conquest of the world’s first peak
The lens only left out the Sherpas
standing silently in a corner there
They were porters, not counted as conquerors
Pay them two thousand US dollars
and they would help any conqueror
conquer Chomolungma
