''Well, I was born a coal miner's daughter\\
In a cabin on a hill in Butcher Holler.\\
We were poor, but we had love;\\
That's the one thing my daddy made sure of.\\
He'd shovel coal to make a poor man's dollar.''\\
-- Loretta Lynn

''Well, I was born a rule reader's daughter\\
In servant's quarters of a palace by Nanjing waters.\\
We were poor, but we had love;\\
That's the one thing my baba made sure of.\\
He slaved away, so hope couldn't seem more farther.\\\

Well, a lot of things have changed since way back then,\\
And it's so odd to be back 'home' again.\\
Not much left but the forest and floors.\\
Nothing lives here anymore,\\
Except my memories and those of my father's boss's daughters.''\\\\


Not really. But I wanted to use this handle to start the trope page for [[AmyTan Amy Tan]]'s wonderful Sagwa series as a tribute to my [[SagwaTheChineseSiameseCat Sagwa, the Chinese Siamese Cat]] fan character, daughter of the Reader of Rules and servant to the Foolish Magistrate and Tai-Tai's daughters.
