Made In China

you know a lot of things

have been invented by the chinese

those shoes you bought

for graduation day they are

Made In China after all

those envelopes you mailed

you mother’s ashes with were all

Made In China see, even your little

the television set that

you bought yourself was

Made In China, yes even

the boy you pledged your

manufactured heart to he was

Made In China (not to mention

that your heart was Made In China

just the same) just the same your pencil

was Made In China and your ancestors

were Made In China together and the clothes

you wear are all Made In China

like every present you’ve ever bought

was not from your own hands

but Made In China

and girl and girl

you shouldn’t be so frightened

about the future you

Made In China and the pretty little

wedding dress that was Made In China

and that phone you’ve broken

that was Made In China

and girl and girl

you shouldn’t be so frightened

look into my eyes

they’re Made In China.
