Stateside: Poem for the National Party

Stateside With Rosalea Barker

Reaction to NZ Herald report of Don Brash's comments

Poem for the National Party

I've got a Chinese wife/
I've got a big flash house/
I've got a boat/
I've got a fondue set

I've got a Chinese wife/
I've got the latest Merc/
I've got flatscreen TV/
I've got a patio set

I've got a Chinese wife/
I've got a canteen of cutlery/
I've got a Queen Anne chair/
I've got a Hotere

I've got a Chinese wife/
I've got a hole in my head if I think that speaking of people as if they were chattels is acceptable coming from the leader of a political party in the 21st century/
Is acceptable coming from anyone

ENDS
