MADE IN CHINA

"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 
"MADE IN CHINA"

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;
"MADE IN CHINA"

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.

MADE IN CHINA 
Shipped easily in a box

~SKAT~

I am hearing capitalism shipped in a box in a coffin on an altar of madness. Your poem provoked me and I believe that is good.

Hey there Skat. What a very lovely poem about "Made in China". Everything you said was and still is so true today. You have a very creative but also insightful way with words. ***Blessedchild ***

Hi Skat, so true, so many things are made in China now, we can afford them. It should be made in U.S.A. In my case, made in the U.K. No, so many times we have to go with what we can afford. An excellent write from start to finish Skat. I must admit to the fact that i am partial to the Chinese Take-away myself. I really enjoyed this read. A seven from me Skat....Vladislav.

Skat: I just love the HUMOR and truth in this. It shows very descriptive play and yet has a bit of sarcasm in what quality we will give up on the Cheap! Good consideration on those labels that replaced USA. TWEAK: Google a car made in China. Most of the really good cars are from "Japan" INCLUDING "Honda". I believe Volvo has left Germany and is now built in China.

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
