Red Tape

bywakingDown©

Red Tape
What a hateful, heartless phrase
Full of callous disregard and dismissal
Riddled with appalling implications

Bureaucratic Quagmire
The ugly older brother looming
Crushing will and dreams both
With grinding wheels of files

Proper Channels
The polite term for wrong office
Go bother someone else with it
I'm on my five oh so sorry

Six Weeks
That magical timeframe stretch
For most paperwork processes
So long to stamp and mail

Filing Error
Start again because we fucked up
You pay for our mistakes in time
While you stand by in cold shadow
Waiting
