"Made In China"

They can have my money
If it saves me money

The toys I played with when I was young,
Says I enjoyed their hands
The Labels read 

The cheap material on my back, the shoes I wore. 
How easily they faded and tore
However, I enjoyed their hands
The Tags on my rags;

The car I own saves money on gas
A tiny Honda Civic, takes me everywhere
I love my sweet silver car
"Manufactured in China"

The never been used--Made in the USA--cookware I own,
Says, I don't work hard at all:)
Yummy to Chinese all you can eat take Outs  
Thank you China for being part of this world
Better Yet!
Thank you China, for making this world a part of yours.

    Skat A. Good reading, good write, and a great reality. I would like to think that we all are interdependent on each other. Perhaps China's 'job market' says, "Made in America".

    Interesting piece on products made in China and how these have successfully flooded the world market. Honda Civic is a Japanese car brand made in Japan. China has tied up with car manufacturers in France(Citroen. Peugeot ), Germany (Volkswagen), Korea (Hyundai, Daihatsu) and later made their own BYD F3 (which was "a known copy" of the Toyota Corolla (with Honda Fit design cues). As for footwear and ready-to-wears, China does volumes but the quality is poor. Instant noodles is one China food product we all come across :-) Nice write and light poetry indeed. ~~~~Cynthia

    Hello SKAT, many memories of playing with toys marked 'MADE IN HONG KONG' :) Quite sad that Chinese hands made my guitar tuners and trusting hands passed them over continents. Then English hands purloined them at the final hurdle ! Leaving that aside, thank you for the very warm welcome and I look forward to reading more ! Steve
