East vs West

In Europe we pour wine with our right hand;

the left is for serving those condemned to die.

So declares the confident white maiden to her yellow man.

To which her insecure yellow man replies:

You are in Asia just remember that and do as Asians do.

Western-educated, he doesn’t really know what Asians do.

But he wants to put the white woman in her place and drum into her that

West is no longer best unless as

a trophy to accompany the newly-fashionable Eastern dress.
