"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.

    Poem "Made in China " is created by a poet who is " Made in U.S.A " ....Products by China are not precious , only use and throw but the poet " Made in U.S .A " is precious . Thanks for this peculiar subject based lines...It's amazing !

    As the world get smaller, we realize that China is much more easily accessible to us than the nearest big city was to our grandparents (or great grans in your case). Cute piece, SKAT A.

    This poem reminds me of my childhood..I had many things made in China and plenty made by mama's hands.Rich children used to have branded stuff or clothes ..trainers made in UK.Nowadays I can buy those branded stuff or stuff made in Uk but Im not surprised when somewhere on a small label oftenly I find made in China on a branded trainer .So yes all the world has become China and China is the world.I do love their delicious food..They re jack of all trades.I really enjoyed this.Tnks 4 reading mine

    Their goods are so reasonably priced because the labor costs are so small. Workers over there are only happy to be working despite their rather meager wages. Good write.

    Yeah Skat , I can also find China all around me. Here in India we too have more "made in China" things than those of "made in India". // After reading your poem , I think it's a Universal truth now. // HeHeHe // SMILES FOR YOU

    Great Poem, SKAT. Made in China does need to be thanked, and this is a excellent way to express that gratitude, enjoyable piece overall. Check out some of poems, might find some you like. Peace.

    This is goodS skat. There was time when things made in China were a joke, but not no more. I too buy things ade in China,because I'm poor. Sorry I have not been around much, as you might know I was sick most of last year and than in November I had a heart attackand a minor stroke. I am still sick and trying to get better.... Lucilla

    I agree! I can also relate. Love the truth and humor of your poem more people should see how China effects our world lol :-)

    A tough pill to swallow but China has slid into home plate these past couple years, from a stollen base. Our home team needs to pull up their socks before they're crossing the plate with a grand slam. When I was young the tags all said Canada, USA, England, Germany and sometimes Japan... Cool write

    as no country of the world should depend fully for eveything on any single country. US is doing the same mistake due to this I often feel concerned for such policies of US, as some policy makers are ignoring the above vital fact in formulating their economic and other policies. This may create some serious economic problems for its people if not corrected & tuned with the changing time. Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2014. Love & best wishes always....Ravindra k Kapoor

    Brilliantly composed lines with a touch of sadness and truth. What a great message you have given to your countrymen through these otherwise simple looking lines. I remember the story and example of Russia. As it was in good competition with US up to 1965-70 but slowly it ignored the presence of its products in the world market and gadually it became almost vanished on the economic horizens of the world. In my opinion US should not make the same mistake. To continue...Ravindra K Kapoor
