Zheng Banqiao(https://lnkd.in/e6Xfp_r) had a straightforward character and was a county governor who governed incorruptibly and intelligently with integrity.
As a result, there was nothing worthwhile at his home.
One night, a thief entered his home, and he chanted a limerick:
On this drizzle-heavy night, the gentleman hiding on the beams has entered my home.
With thousands of volumes of poems and books in the belly, there is not even half a tael of silver in bed or on the table.
Look out the yellow-tailed dog, look out the green flowerpots over the wall.
When you leave, let me give you a coat in the middle of the night.
Pack your ambitions, and become a man.
