Letter to the West

We make your shiny TVs and your shiny phones. 

We make your pretty shoes and stitch your pretty clothes. 

You pick and choose what pieces of our cultures you adopt

And you sneer at what you don't understand

Our women are your fantasies

Our men are for you to slander

We are all Chinese to you

We all have tiny eyes

And even tinier...other things

We are meek

We are shy

Well, to you, that is

We love you

We slave for you

Our world
