Dear China,

"China is a big country, inhabited by many Chinese." - charles De Gaulle

Dear China,
Although it's been fun,
I have some requests.
Here's number one:
Enough with the fireworks, (AD NAUSEAM!)-
New Years is done!

Dear China,
Your cuisine is exquisite!
The hot pot is as heavenly,
As the various dumpling dishes.
All I ask for is dinner,
Sans cockroach visits.

Dear China,
With your people so kind,
Enough with the spitting.
Honestly, do you mind?
A more repulsive habit
I'm hard pressed to find.

Dear China,
I'm trying to learn your language fast,
But do cut me some slack,
For the tones leave me aghast.
Mā, má, mǎ, mà... four different words,
But - each sounds like the last!

Dear China,
Use caution when you drive.
Washed up in a gutter,
On the streets of Shanghai,
Is not exactly a way
I would like to die.

Dear China,
I feel these stipulations are fair,
P.S. When I walk by,
Please try not to stare.
And when you're behind me on the bus,
No more petting my hair.

-Sincerely yours,

A broad abroad
