China's Capitalist Revolution

I once lived in the richest nation
Till communism made a strange transformation
Just cuz China invented paper money
Then ditched it cuz the chaos wasn't funny
Luckily, communism is a lake not a river
Slow moving currents force bone chilling shivers
But cash & communism, like oil & water
Become all the more volatile as they get hotter
Heat rises in the air & in hearts
Separating pieces from critical parts
You may walk upright in your house
But once inside you live like a mouse
Fish may seem to jump on your plate
But sooner or later, one or the other will break
All this, you bare for China's sake
Like American's poor don't have any stake
Your prison is personal down to dotting the 'i'
Our's are ghettos with populations too high
China once was an intricate culture
Now, like the West, she's just a resource vulture
Her children, like ants, forage abroad
To sustain the CCP which is a Western Fraud
Like heroin & jobs we import with intention
Then bribe your leaders so its never mentioned
Forget how we treat you & all that we've done
The fact we're surrounding you is just for fun
Like Chile, Iraq, the House of Saud, & Iran
It's capitalism born from a military plan
Nah, we give that up to be friendly foes
And where we stop, nobody knows

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
