Briefcases in the Wild!


Behold! This strange and wily beast

On all your dreams he’s sure to feast

Your fears and worries make him fat

This creature called the Bureaucrat

He sees your life as mere red tape

To useless rules he clings and scrapes

He makes us walk a rigid line

When we misstep we pay a fine

When you’ve inhaled some noxious vapor

Before getting help you sign a paper

If your son’s been shot and bleeds all over  

“He’ll wait his turn!” says society’s drover

When facing an emergency

She’ll say, “You have to pay a fee!”

The private sector and government

Are where this creature’s time is spent

No new ideas or sympathy

Just arrogance and apathy

Beware my friends the Bureaucrat!

The whole earth is its habitat
