He Dong Shi Hou (The Lioness of Hedong Roars)
Su Sui, a celebrated poet and man of letters in the Song Dynasty, once composed a highly entertaining poem, which is literally interpreted as follows:
Lay Buddhist Longqiu (His real name was Chen Zao, and he styled himself Jichang and was a good friend of Su Shi. Chen was known for his great hospitality, always treating his visitors to wine and chatting with them late into the night. His wife, however, was a jealous and shrewd woman. Whenever there was a singsong girl among them, she would knock the wall partition with a stick and make a hullaballoo about it though she never appeared herself. When this happened, the guests had to leave immediately. On one occasion, Su Shi composed this poem as a joke; and henceforth "Jichang" became a term for "being henpecked" or "a henpecked husband".) is a pitiful man;
He loves to sit up late talking endlessly on scriptures;
All of a sudden, the lioness of Hedong (Hedong was the name of a prefecture and it happened that Chen's shrewd wife came from there. Su Shi used "Hedong" to suggest the woman making all these noises in the next room.) roars
And the rod pounds at the partition wall - his heart sinks.
