\but you couldnt explain the fact that there was a class echelon.class structure so to speak of, the shi nung gung shan, also on ehas to look at the complexity of the generation poem ,what it is trying to tell the clan members. for example a fmaily generation poem in a shi family vis a vis a gung ,shan family would be radically different, i had a person telling me, the poor will aspire ot be rich ,hence a generation poem on the descendets to be blessed with riches as comapred to a rich family who will writ in the poem to encourage the descendents to be shcoalry or to becoem offials, for those who are in an official family, the generation poem will tlak about continuing the good reputation & hereditary tradiidotn of th ancestors in the filed of educaiton or the path of being a good official
