You have squinty eyes!
Are you Chinese?'

'Not necessarily,' I calmly reply.

'Not all Asians are from China,
It gets us really mad
To hear all of us being called
Chinese! It's really pretty sad.

I mean, some could be Japanese,
Korean, or Mongolian,
Maybe even Phillipino,
Or perhaps Singaporean.

But you guys are too dumb,
You never realize
That Chinese people aren't the only ones
With 'squinty eyes!'

The girl replies,
'Okay then.
Where are you from?'

I laugh and say,

'Well, I'm from China!'

The End
