Alibaba Stock Falls On Weak Anticounterfitting

In the Arabian Nights we were mesmerized with ”Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves”
With his “Open Sesame” to take some treasure from the cave and leave
Today a new Alibaba has opened the treasure cave
To the tune of a huge public offering and investors’ raves
A new Alibaba  now sharing the pages with 40 Regulators not 40 Thieves
Causing the investors from the cave with their paper gold to grieve
Rapid increase in revenues for Alibaba but today its stock price fell
As on the issue of counterfeit goods sold through Alibaba the Chinese regulators wished to dwell
Ironic that we have been like Cato against Carthage but against the Chinese in a repetitious refrain
Exported Chinese counterfeit goods and stealing of IP are acts that China must abstain
One hates to see investors take a nine percent  one day bath
But maybe Alibaba will take anticounterfitting steps to avoid its regulators’ wrath
Even if the Chinese regulators attacking Alibaba is like the pot calling the kettle black
The manufacturers  in China may be encouraged  to follow a new non cheating tack
