Why 58 Million Chinese Kids Grow Up without Parents by Their Side?

31 May 2012

These kids live in rundown rural areas where the rivers are contaminated, the crops are genetically modified, the houses are from time to time forcibly demolished, the education is neglected, the healthcare is often non-existed, and more sadly, their parents are not around. They are truly free-range kids but not organically fed.

Then why their parents have to go to cities to find jobs, leaving their farmland uncultivated and their offspring unattended? Because the multinationals need cheap labours to make their products more competitive. Then why Chinese government allows this situation to continue? Because the multinationals have their allies in Chinese government. Then why their Chinese allies help jeopardize China's future? Because they either have no love for Chinese nation, or they are blackmailed into compliance, or both.

Premier Wen: Feeling blue? Okay, I've got the blue for you

Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao gives this poor village boy, seemingly not being properly fed, a new school bag as his present. The boy thanks Wen Jiabao for his generous offer. The bag was purchased with Chinese tax payers' money, which includes the amount contributed by the boy's parents who are forced to work as peasant labours on slavery wages in city, leaving the boy behind in the village.

When the boy looks back (反思) on the staged meeting with Wen Jiabao after he grows up, he may write a blue (bag) song:

Used to be so easy to give my heart away.
But I found out the hard way,
There's a price I have to pay,
It's a road that leads to pain.

When Wen Jiabao looks back (反思) on the staged meeting with the boy after he retires to other time-space, he may create his second poem:

I saw your face just whiles ago,
So quick the old has been replaced by the new.
Even though my days long go,
I've still got the blues for you.


Premier Wen Jiabao has been considered by as many as a dozen of Chinese as a poet as great as celebrated Li Bai or Du Fu for the reason that he has recited a dozen of other people's verses on a dozen of public occasions and, more amazingly, even composed one poem of his own.
