There was an empress in a 19th century land

Who ruled with a fair but iron hand

A small white dog was ever by her side

In times of fear under her skirts he would hide

Dogs not allowed in the Forbidden City

So they took him and strangled him –a great pity

From that day forward she was hard as a nail

And made sure the guilty on nails were impaled 

Her vengeance was sated but there was yet something to do

And for that time it was a remarkable breakthrough

Dogs no longer forbidden in that place

As long as she lived that was to be the case

She told them she wouldn’t tolerate such wrong

All for the memory of her one friend Baixiong
