Life becomes more complicated
More silly rules and tight constraints
Red tape makes us all frustrated
No answers when we make complaints.
Costs are rising, taxes too
Yet the Government is strapped for cash
Why it’s 50 cents just for the loo
We’re imploding – soon there’ll be a crash.
But hey! The tide begins to turn
Many without work think hard;
An exchange of services they learn
Means the taxman’s caught off guard.
The multilingual workforce here
Diploma-ridden, highly skilled,
With time on their hands, can share
Their expertise - and no one’s billed!
