So why did President Obama
Decline to meet the Dalai Lama?
It's said that he must curry favor
With Chiina. Yes, it has our waiver
To toss its people in the clink
For how they pray or what they think
And we've resolved that we won't fret
About the way it rules Tibet.
For going along when China's rotten
It's hard to think of what we've gotten.
