Carts, Horses And Cannons Final Killing

The lord refuses to obey.
The pillars and wine tables of the Hongmen Banquet became a dynasty chess game. The wine glass raised above his head is still praised by the flame.The only one hundred thousand sergeants were trapped in an ambush by Han Xin’s 600,000 carts, horses and cannons.
Is this the fate? The fire rushed with the wind and burned the covenant of border of two opposing powers of Chu River and Han. All roads lead to heaven before dark. Heavy artillery, pan-headed horses, two-cars staggered serial killing without fear of death. It’s just going farther. It’s just that Yu Ji became the soul of feather, in this life. There is no red cloak next to the horse Wu Zhui.
The lord refuses to obey.
The 40,000 soldiers in the Battle of Julu fighted against the 400,000 carts, horses and cannons of Qin Army, which became the extermination of Qin. So many people call me overlord, I dismissed it. Now I have to pay the debts for the overlord and die for him. Even if people will die eventually, my internal organs are hollowed out.
The lord refuses to obey.
In the Battle of Pengcheng, 30,000 soldiers fighted against prince, Liu Bang with 560,000 carts, horses and cannons. It is successful in long-distance attack. Creeping on the left side of Liu Bang’s middle army tent, for the first time the horses-cavalryman were used on the battlefield. The horses treat Princes Alliance and regard the tomb as the bridal chamber. I didn’t kneel down, did not.
The lord refuses to obey.
Unless the water of Wujiang River flows back. Thousands of years later,
If someone opens the tomb, they will see that I never close my eyes. A goshawk is hovering over
border of two opposing powers of Chu River and Han, with blood dripping in eyes.
If someone opens the tomb, they will see me standing. The sky fell on the grave.
The water in the Chu River rose and rose again, sending the wings it used to be.
The lord refuses to obey.
I has turned into a Sirius star above the border of two opposing powers of Chu River and Han, wandering between heaven and earth. Down and up; down and up again. No one around me.
