我是中国华侨

我的中文不是很好

所以我需要用外语

表达自己

I have to use the language of the colonizers

Oppressors

Who have oppressed the Chinese

For centuries

Crafty f***ers

First you send

Missionaries

To cleanse the

‘Inferior’ culture

Get hold of Macau

Then you force

Opium

“Get those ‘squinty eyes’

Addicted”

If they show any signs of discontent

You bomb them to passive happiness

A little opium ‘high’

Cut a piece of Hong Kong

More of you come

Everybody cuts pieces and pieces

Steaks of influence

You eat as you watch

Our fight against Japan

Let the ‘yellow’ skins fight

Themselves to death

“We’ll come in the end”

Finish the fight

And be labeled as

The ‘World Saviours’

We give them loans

(Shh, with some strings attached)

Change the history

And convince everyone in the world

That the Whites

Are the ‘World Saviours’

No, not the Yellows

No, not the Browns

No, not the Blacks

If any of these native Leaders

Arise and threaten Us

We will do everything in our power

To buy them

If we can’t

Make the world

Hate them

“Dammed Communists”

“Dictators”

“Terrorists”

They should

Die, die!

Burn in Hell

Funny thing

Is that

We are all going to

If we continue this road

Of Hatred, Ignorance and Greed…
