“ Planners and Plotters!”.
There are Planners, and Plotters, and Schemers, and such,
There are people in there who will speak Double Dutch,
There are Mayors and Aldermen, Councillors too,
All claiming expenses, (` but working for you` ).
There are meetings and seminars, lectures as well,
With so many Chiefs, it is hard here to tell,
There are tiers and layers of bureaucracy,
All claiming expenses, (but angering me ).
There are Taxes to take here and new rules to make,
There are people to worry, and things to forsake,
There are fancy portfolios, that never come true,
Robbing money from me, (robbing money from you ).
We call this, A council, for want of a word,
But these make decisions, ( that sometimes seem absurd ),
I know these are hindered by Government chain,
But a lot of these people are lacking a brain.
I am a motorist, I drive a car,
But in these hard times, I don`t get very far,
You take all my money, (` I even pay for my bin` )
BUT YOU DON`T FIND THE POTHOLES, AND YOU DON`T FILL THEM IN!.
I don`t need a car now, i`ve sent for a tank,
It`ll cost all the money that I have in the bank,
But when I learn to drive it, I will stay in control,
When I venture around in the roads with the hole.
So, you Planners and Plotters and Schemers and such,
And you people in there who will speak Double Dutch,
Start earning your money and do what we say,
MEND THE HOLES IN THE ROAD!. – Go on, – DO IT TODAY!.
