A cigarette gets you in the door,
And with the wine you hear the deal,
But if you want the problem solved,
It’s gotta be a great big meal.

This Chinese “slippery jingle” via translator Perry Link, author unknown.
One more, also translated by Perry:

Officials are addicted to money
While the people labor and sweat.
If something else counts, then it’s funny
That no one’s run into it yet.

— Jonathan Werve
