The Old Mandarin on His Travels

When I visited America
I saw two things that struck me as extraordinary:
People packed in the subway
Rocking uneasily on their hams
Endlessly studying the newspapers;
And people packed in the movies
Endlessly staring at the films.
I said to myself
If the American people ever develop Minds
There are two great industries
That will crash.
