拖不死的穷汉子

Poor man not dragged to death

天阴下雨,天色墨黑。

It was cloudy and rainy, and the sky was black.

天还没亮,周兴和打着火把,背着草药背篼,沿着下山的那条泥泞小路,跌跌绊绊朝三元乡街上走去——他要趁天还没亮,把这几天扯的草药背到场上卖了,再赶回队里上班。

Before dawn, Zhou Xinghe, with a torch and a basket of herbs on his back, hobbled down the dirt road to the street of Sanyuan Village - carrying a basket of herbs on his back, he had to sell them on the fair and came back to work in the team before dawn.

分家后,15岁的周兴和就独自承担起生儿育女、养家糊口的家庭责任来。15岁,如果按照年龄段来分,他还只是个少年;而今,城里像他那个年龄段的少年,说不定还在父母面前撒娇,动不动还要威胁父母离家出走,让父母打着灯笼遍天下去找呢!

After dividing their family property, Zhou Xinghe, 15 years old, took on the responsibility of raising children and supporting the family alone. At 15 years old, he would be a teenager just according to the age; nowadays, the urban teenager in his age, may just act coquettishly in front of his parents, or threaten his parents by running away from home, and let the parents to find hime all over the world!

那时的农村人,除了上班挣工分,是没有任何经济来源的。要想搞点副业,那是“资本主义尾巴”,是要被割掉的。同时,队的规定也不近人情,一户人家只能养一只鸡,一个人只能在自留地里种一窝菜。外出打工吧,不但无工可打,说不定还要把你当成“流窜犯”给抓起来;就是扯点草药卖几个鸡蛋,也会说你不务正业,搞投机倒把走资本主义,没收你的东西不说,还要挨批斗。

At that time, the rural people, in addition to work to earn the workpoints, had no other source of income. If you wanted to have a bywork, it's the "tail of capitalism", which shall be cut off. At the same time, the rules of the production team were also inhuman, that a family can only keep one chicken, and a person can only plant a vegetable in their own private plot. Going out to work, there had no work to do, instead you may be arrested as a "criminal on the run"; even if you just digged herbs or sold a few eggs, you would be accused of not attending to your proper duties, speculating or taking the capitalism way, so your goods would be confiscated and you shall be criticized.

但,一家人总要活下去呀!为了活命,周兴和顾不到那么多了,他必须要冒着风险千方百计养活一家人。

However, the family must survive! In order to survive, Zhou Xinghe could not consider so much. He had to take risks and try his best to support his family.

在妻子给他生下大女儿之后,接着几年,又给他生下二女一男。到周兴和23岁时,他已经是4个儿女的父亲了。这时,一家人不说其它,就是吃饭的嘴,联起来就有一尺长;这一家人在当时的境况下要生存下去,不被饿死冻死,就是难以想象的了。那些年,尽管周兴和和妻子没日没夜拼命地干,但还是一穷二白入不敷出,穷得有时连买斤盐巴、打斤煤油的钱也拿不出来。有好长一段时间,家里点不起煤油灯,一个屋里黑咕隆咚的,天一擦黑,一家人就只能窝在床上。

A few years after his wife gave birth to his eldest daughter, she gave birth to two more girls and a boy. By the time Zhou Xinghe was 23 years old, he was the father of four children. At this time, not to mention anything else, only the mouths of the family connected together was over one foot long; it was inconceivable that the family could survive in the circumstances of that time without dying of starvation or freezing to death. In those years, although Zhou Xinghe and his wife worked hard day and night, they were so poor that they could not make ends meet. Sometimes, they could not even afford to buy the salt or kerosene. For a long time, the family could not afford to light a kerosene lamp, so the house was so dark that one family had to stay in bed when getting dark.

熬吧,熬!

Carry on!

那时,他们全家人有一半的时间是吃两顿饭。所谓“饭”,其实吃的大多是猪食一样的东西。即便有点粮食,每次煮饭时只能在红苕叶或牛皮菜上撒上把包谷面或麦麸子。那时,他们全家6口人,10斤包谷面要吃20多天。兴和深刻地记得,1970年过春节时,大年三十中午,他全家人就煮了一顿油稀饭,大人小孩算是开了个荤,算是过了年!
