The world’s oldest, largest civilisation is rising to prominence now;
pre-Lao Tse days to the modern legacy of Chairman Mao.
A people’s democratic dictatorship ensures that all are free,
while the state expands with reclaimed lands, all Chinese historically
- & don’t forget
South China’s sea.

China hopes to sway to truth those misguided in Hong Kong.
It may take some time but
sooner or later they shall realise they’re wrong.
This harmonious socialist society has a responsive, listening ear.
When problems are
raised by protesters, they find they disappear.
No more protests here.
Let’s build our new great wall.
Arise ye who refuse to be slaves.
Our flesh & blood,
One for one China.
Climate-changing pollution pours, placidly, people pay the price
- happy to see dear
Mr Xi’s presidency feed China’s smoke-filled, hungry eyes.
Development loans encourage
other nations to support the Chinese view.
Helpful foreign government workers & politicians
are well-rewarded too
but Winnie the Pooh is taboo.
Anyone who tries to split any region from China is going to perish
with their bodies
smashed and their bones ground to powder.
“The eerie tune does justice to the subject matter.”
[Zara - Lahore]
