Failed in China
Staring at my clock, with the persistence that it lacks.
The digital had died so with a rotate I checked the back.
The plug leads to an outlet while a battery compartment shells nothing but a tag.
Just 3 words show, “Made in China.”
This repair I won’t pursue, you can’t fix china or the poor craftsmanship they spew.
Passing by my futon, a second glance becomes a stare.
To notice another tag attached accompanied by an obnoxious tear.
Just 3 words show, “Made in China”.
The wife comes walking in, her iPod leaves a braid.
Unexpected pixels from bottom to top and never will they fade.
Apple can be tricky, the 3 words they did change.
“Manufactured in China”.
Manufacturing is making, this sleazy Chinese stain.
On many of my purchases, unknowingly, these manufacturers I blame.
Their workers worse than hookers, the greed gives birth to disease.
For every jobless American, caused by factories overseas.
Not paying American taxes, is this how you support the troops?
I say we ban these productions, abusing loop-holes and forming flukes.
If we got rid of the greedy, everyone would be content.
These “Made in China’s” will not work, they kill the “American dream.”
Creating the loss of unity, protected by legality, these Americans are trading teams.
