Welcome to My Poetry Site
China needs the world
The world does not need China 2
You never know what China has
Planted in what, and what’s waiting
In what to be switched on.
The escape route
The answer is complex and begins
In my country, Britain, with the ill-fated
1980s deindustrialization programme
That saw factories large and small
Close down with the loss of millions of
Home grown jobs and in their place
The so-called money-saving idiocy of
Passing all our technology and work
To China, that mysterious place of
Black macs and clapping penguins,
Who now rule the roost and could,
Should they wish, call time on any
Item critical to the well-being of the
What happened to Ferranti, GEC,
Marconi? Once great British companies,
Sidelined and dumped in the name of
Dubious profits which today can be seen
In the likes of BT (British Telecom's plc)
Now wholly dependent and one might say
Wholly owned by China, and if the rug
Were pulled BT would disappear faster
Than its phoney high-speed Made in China
The world badly needs to wake to what
The big corporations and PLCs have done
To our right to freedom, freedom to invent,
To create jobs, to be what we all once were,
Free to pick and choose home-made items
That left our shores seemingly forever, but
Not so Mr Shenzhen, we want our world
Back, our Jobs and our livelihoods.
There are people in the world increasingly
Anxious to know what we think and what
We’re doing. Technology has made it possible
To snoop without our knowing anything is
Amiss, and we should note the ever-present
Dangers imported into our midst by careless
Unaccountable corporations & plcs and stay
Alert at all times. It is fair to say I believe that
In the UK British Telecommunication plc
Otherwise known as BT, owners of telephone
Poles and much dodgy wiring is at its present-
Day heart, prmarily Made in China.
The world is in search of your info’, if asked
‘What are your preferences’? ‘Tell us what you
Think? Tell lies, make up stories, and whatever
You do, do not tell the truth. Made up stories
And lies will skew the data and your hidden
Secret profile big time, putting nosy noses
Completely out of joint.
They are buying us out of our own countries
Using our own money, if you want your world
Back: Stop buying from China.
Time to take back what has always been ours,
Technology, Industry, innovation and jobs.
Cheap goods are not a good enough reason
To deprive our people, our children and our
Countries of the right to work, invent, create,
Design, manufacture, and profit from our
Less and less made in Britain, more and
More Made in China. Have you noticed
Items on eBay coming straight from China
At UK and USA prices? Doesn’t it make you
Think? More more people out of work,
Fewer and fewer jobs to go round. Yes we
Should be mindful of the coronavirus and
The dire threat it represents to life, but
Equally so, we should be mindful of what a
China based jobless Britain, and a China
Based jobless USA means to the well-being
Of our two nations. it cannot go on forever.
We have allowed China to incapacitate
Our skills base, the West once the
Workshop of the world, is today in the
Peg basket business; our own advanced
Technology immeasurable improved and
For the most part beyond our reach or
Reclaim, reclaim because the plants and
Factories formally busy places of enterprise
Have disappeared with the workforce.
Of course China want to invest in our countries,
It seeks to take over the world, having commercially
Brought us to our knees, stolen all our work, China
Can buy whatever it likes and more especially,
On the cheap. What did China pay for
We should always bear in mind that China doesn’t
Do business as we might understand it. China is
A predator, and what China does is to lull dummies
Into a false sense of security on price and then
Works to cripple and stifle any remaining homw grown
Competition, and we let them get away with it.
Profits were once all that mattered, but now the
Goose has come home to roost, and with it
The reality of exactly what dealing with China
Really means. The coronavirus was the wake
Up call, the world shut down, staff were
Furloughed, jobs were lost, some never to be
Recovered, and now thousands will be looking
For work that no longer exists. What did it matter
To the likes of BT and their gravy train from China?
Well, it might start to matter very much, very soon.
We are already in catch up, and catch up we will,
Given the right incentives, high-finance and the
Political will to succeed.
Made in China is itself a pandemic we should
All be afraid of. High profits for the few should
Never be allowed to jeopardise the livelihoods
Of the many. Trading with China should be done
At a suitable distance, wearing a mask, a visor,
And fireproof gloves.
Shouldn’t we be concerned when we see a
Superpower brought to life by the oxygen
Of our own stupidity. It is we in the West,
The money in the west that made China
The power it is today, and we in the West
Who should wake up to what we’ve done
Or let others do in our name, and if not
Completely withdraw all work from China,
Then at least substantially curb it.
We have potentially empowered a nation
That one day may turn against us. We
Can see it in Hong Kong and elsewhere,
China cares nothing for the West, all they
Want is all our work and all our money,
Money to fund their war machine. China
Is a serious threat to the world and the
More we patronise their factories the
Closer we come to our own demise. Is
Profit-making a good enough reason to
Ignore human rights, overlook creeping
Aggression, and recently, turn a blind eye
To Hong Kong when it suits the banks, the
Accountants, and the wallets of the money
Grubbers? Personally, I don’t think it is.
China is a sponge when it comes to in-coming
Technology, but a closed-shop when it comes to
Sharing technical information, when suddenly all
Becomes a trade-secret that cannot be revealed.
Such is the infiltration of Made in China goods
In our lands it will not be easy to resist, so many
Things have Made in China on the back, but with
The will to resist change will come, the coronavirus
Will see UK/USA factories back in business. There
Wull be thousands out of work and all the insentive
One needs to create a second industrial revolution.
Mark my words it will come.
Send Made in China back to China, soon there’ll
Be little China makes that we need. FU** off Alexa.
A come-back journey starts with the first step. Joe
