Your Gordian Knot

I tried to untie your Gordian knot
That you have called your organization.
I found this activity I have sought
Was one of a futile desperation.
I have decided to leave it alone,
And move on to a new destination,
But you do not like the progress I’ve shown,
Wishing for its old manifestation.
So I am returning to you the mess
Knowing you comfort in its creation,
But as I leave, I would like to confess
It’s built from a lack of motivation.
Whenever you jump on the latest trends,
You will never tie up all the loose ends.

The Office of Immigration

It is our goal to be known for something
That looks like the field of bureaucracy.
You thought the other countries were tiring,
But come to our corner of the city,
And you will find that you will never leave,
Not because you now desire to stay.
Our staff has been trained in how to deceive
You that you’ll accomplish your task today.
All the required forms have been hidden,
And when you ask for more information,
The nature that employees are bidden
Is to point you in the wrong direction.
It’s become the source of our greatest pride
To take the farang on a day long ride.

Farang – Thai word for foreigner

Bureaucracy

The announcement by us is being made
To let you know that another will come.
We know that right now many are afraid,
And are unaware of where the threat’s from.
But we need time to prepare what we’ll say
In a very important announcement
That we are announcing about today.
Please hold on to that trust in government.
That is all we have to say for right now,
And we ask that you come back tomorrow
When we will give you the why, what and how,
But give us the time for our plan to grow.
We do appreciate that you’re present
For our announcement for our announcement.
