I couldn’t hide my eyes
which made me Other
attacking with long swords
Mongolianism was the original term
for Down’s Syndrome,
a parent’s nightmare
to see their child’s eyelids’
thick and covered open
“short stature, flat face”
those were the mentioned features
“It’s” not like Us
looks like Them
slit eyed yellow dogs
dirty ponytailed mongrels.
I remember looking it up
when encyclopedias still existed
white babies were diseased
if they looked Chinese
they were labeled Mongolian
the word for mentally retarded.
Charlie Chan yellow face Asshole
Have you heard this one?
“Chinese people never cuss
Ass So Ass So”
kids sang that in playgrounds
when I was growing up
I had it rough fighting with school bullies
I was small but a bulldozer
with the advantage of surprise
they didn’t expect me to stand up to their lies.
I fought and won I’m proud of that
cause bullies will never stop until you make them.
Corporate Media loved to display
our flat butts and flat chest and flat black hair
in Chinese opera bangs and buns
coiled like Star Wars’ Leia
Don’t get me started on the cultural theft there
The Force is stolen Chi
Can’t you believe it?
Lucas didn’t invent anything
we were brainwashed to think
he created something he “borrowed”
He’s another Columbus pretending
he discovered something that already existed.
Conquerors plant their blood soaked flags
on virgin lands and people who danced and sang
joyfully with the trees in the water waving planting laughter
They were too natural, in harmony with goodness
unweaponized and unprepared for the slaughter.
Asian “girls” are still for sale
in the Pink Room brothels of torture
by pedophiles with pockets full of American dollars
they buy the stolen children at a bargain
sip their cocktails like emperors of excursion.
They tie them up and beat them while they rape their orphaned bodies.
It’s true even if you’d don’t want to know
it’s happening right now somewhere everywhere
there’s blood and semen dripping on shell shocked bombed out walls.
Propaganda shows Asian porno ready
beauties in make up masks waiting for abuse
bending over blowing kisses
while wearing triangle peasant farmer hats
like temples bowing perfect appreciation
in g string thongs of adoration
for the love you long time G I gods
of Kubrick’s mention.
Call Girls hope for their chance out of hell
straight into war bride prison
in faraway lands with languages
they can’t understand
or recognize themselves in
they’re trapped again in bondage
in redneck towns where they’d stand out
if they tried to run or crawl away
after a beating that’s all you can do.
Massage girls in hovels called hotels
with paper crepe parasols decorated
with origami cranes and dragon pearls
yellow concubine birds and swallows.
Opium fat madame bows boozy accented glory
shows her old cleavage still has bargirl mileage
on MASH the racist, sexist TV
North American heroes show.
When I was a preteen living in the US
in the 1980s land of coked up celluloid MTV dreams
I watched Bowie’s China girl
with anticipated affection
that turned into humiliated embarrassment:
the tip toed subservience, Fu Man Chu grotesque nails,
the whispered shushing and fake shy blushing
makes me want to hurl and punch
dead Bowie in his blonde haired pale face.
Yes I liked his music that’s why I’m so mad
with all of his knowing cultural awareness
why’d he do it?
Why’d he betray us and exploit
the stereotypes of Asian women
as ageless premature girls giggling,
with high pitched cutesy helpless voices,
serving men like living blow up dolls
geishas of free publicity.
Don’t forget George Michael’s “Sex Positive” video
I want your sex bullshit
pretending to want flat Asian female ass!
The music video’s lens never left her walking gap
crack of her ass bikinied in limbo objectification
of young model’s bones encased in anorexic skin
displaying her flat assets aplenty,
to pretend Gay Michaels wasn’t gay.
That sell out never even properly came out
instead he got arrested for public indecency
like a coward in a public toilet.
I’m not a gay basher, all my gay friends are brave
not hiding in the closet exploiting
Asian stereotypes to sell cheesy albums.
What are the corporate executives afraid of?
That they constantly portray Asians as a meal
to rape and ingest and flush away.
Do they think exploiting us will make us go away
or be more invisible then we already are?
Do they think that by subduing us
with yellow horde propaganda
that they’ll improve their math skills
and actually earn their way to Harvard?
I’ve come to tell the truth
singing the songs of trafficked children
on a Sunday afternoon
while rich sons of asshole daddies
rule our forsaken world
as They always have
because We let them.
