Bureaucratic Insectivores


Move them in rolls,
just according to systems;
side this way,
side that way,
procedures please!

A little shift,
a little more patience;
in here regulations are meant to be followed,
and rules sing the same tunes, 
modalities please!

Files delayed,
the big men—
the bosses at the top—
demands heavily loaded brown envelope;
lest time fragments your needs!

On top all was meant be well;
the procedures were shorter,
simplicity on labeled methodical,
but in these hot days,
—man must first seek his share
his empty stomach on greed strike!

So must he overturn procedures—
rules and regulations—
to stringent sun bath….
and o’ yes,
that sings corruption at peak.
creating souls for dreadful bribes!
