Post-Mao Rise - Poem by Mason Maestro

Tell me true, tell me why, did Mao have to die?
Is it for this that Jiang Ze Min lied?
Was it want? Was it need?
To see Tiananmen riots on TV?
Is that a hint of accusation in your eyes?
If it wasn't for the tanks
Being so good at pulling ranks
Free reign would not be open on enterprise
And it is so much joy for them
Within great China's rise
With all their kids regurgitating lines
What have you done, Beijing what have you done?
What have you done for western powers?
Should we shout, should we scream?
What happened to the post-Mao dream?
Oh Beijing, Beijing, what have you done?
