Have you noticed all the news from China is bad?

Not just their virus, but that life there is sad:

Oppression and smog, Internet beratement,

Just eating fries is political statement!

Floods, executions, and Hong Kong unrest,

Where do they find time to make such protest?


To make such protest or to make so much stuff?
From chips to chains Chinese can't make enough.
They must work between earthquakes and baby-food scares,
Do post-flooding overtime to make legs for chairs,
And now with this virus thing, Alibaba might fail
To bring me my buy, or will Jack Ma prevail?
Well, they seem to make progress, but how I can't see,
Maybe that's why they've got that slave-driver Xi,
Commies have a bite that's hard as a viper,
And have folks mesmerized like the Pied Piper.
CNN said they're adding nanos to tea
That turn folks into zombies by rays of 5G.
Russia's another where everything goes wrong,
Corruption runs rife so that Putin stays strong.
Folks don't have kids because their lives are so bad,
While Vlady spends dough on his Arab comrade,
Guns down opponents and games our election,
Making it look like old Don's our selection.
Yes, though daily I check the channels and Times,
Keeping watch on humanity's busy enzymes,
From neither do I ever hear any good news,
Not even so much as a cat-in-tree schmooze,
'Cause the Chinese eat cat and Russia axed trees:
Dictatorships, Fox says, just do as they please.
