INSIDE A CHRISTMAS CARD

INSIDE A CHRISTMAS CARD

Inside a Christmas card
From prisoners afraid,
In a factory in China
Where nothing much is paid,
A handwritten message
From poor souls enslaved,
In oppressive conditions
Where festive things are made.

Telł somebody beg the authors
The truth about this trade,
That those who make big money
Our wretched lives degrade
So in this season of goodwill
When joy should never fade,
Beware all exploiters seeking
Your attention to evade.

Do we honesty believe that everything made in China or any third world country is ethically produced? On the other hand it produces employment where none would be available if we insisted on western standards.
