Mining is making us lazy

some poet (AlanR) posted on

The graph suggests we’re up the creek,
as all the minerals start to peak.

to which i reply:

It's not the peaking mining
but peaking Peking signing
if China slows nobody grows
but maybe i'm just whining

i contend the real growth
is immigrants you see
the money from the minerals
is just some cream to me

to me or rather some fat cat
who sells our mineral wealth
and takes his a cut of riches
by law and maybe stealth

the falling productivity?
well gee i guess we must
bring harder workers from afar
it's that or we go bust
