The Administration at Play

Petulant children play
while nearly a million pay
by receiving no pay
for work done every day.
“Oh, they will get back pay
when petulant children stop play,”
some say;
“But some live pay-
check to pay-
check, do pray,”
others say.
Too bad, petulant children still prey.
“Am I my brother
and sister’s keeper?” they say.
“When one suffers, we all suffer,”
someone else does say.
“Well, tell that one to fly away
and don’t spoil our play,”
the petulant children petulantly say
day after day after day
and adding insult to injury,
they gave themselves a taxpayer paid
ten thousand dollar raise in pay.
