Chinese Fan

Most all of my furniture it comes from China
It’s far better travelled than I’ll ever be
My clothing, my laptop, my fixtures and fittings
Have all come from China across the wide sea.

And when I go shopping the label of origin
That does declare where the journey began
Almost invariably it does say ‘China’
Their goods they are good and I am a fan.

Perhaps there are products made to be finer
That come from South Africa or from Belize
But value for money it seems ‘made in China’
Is the only brand label that a product needs

I want to say thanks to the people of China
Who give to the world a bounty undreamed
More items well priced than we can imagine
I only ask that you please make them green…
