Last chance to satirise the anthem
10 January 2019
It's about to become illegal in Hong Kong to satirise the national anthem, so there's just time to get one in before the bamboo curtain descends, to get you all feeling patriotic and respectful:
Arise, ye who refuse to be sellers!
With our cash and debt,
Let us build a Great Wall of money!
As China faces its greatest slowdown,
From each one the urgent call to action comes forth.
Buy! Buy! Buy!
Millions of but one heart,
Braving the fundamentals, pile in!
Braving the central planning, fill up!
Risk on! Risk on! Risk on!
Or if you prefer, try the 1941, pre-communist version with democratic lyrics here.
