Busy Hating!

By Anonymous, March 8, 2017

This poem is making rounds on Chinese social media as execrable protests against South Korea over THAAD deployment continue across the country.  Enjoy. – The Editors



In the morning I hate America
After lunchtime I hate Korea
In the evening, I hate the Japanese
I have to squeeze in hate for Singapore and the Taiwanese
Then at night when I dream
I hate on Vietnam and the Philippines

On Monday I oppose Korea
On Tuesday, Japan
On Wednesday, it’s the Americans
On Thursday I oppose the independence of Taiwan
Friday, that of Hong Kong
Come Saturday, against independence in Tibet is what I am
On the Sabbath, it’s that of Uyghurs in Xinjiang

My life is so wonderful and rich
Of everything else, I have no time to think or bitch
