Book 36 Page 49
I am ‘a bureaucrat,’
I have a relationship with the state,
although at times it is one of;’ love and hate.’
None the less I enforce its rules;
because deep down I believe that; “rules are rules,”
they are meant to be followed.
And I know that in this you sometimes think me ‘hollow.’
But I don’t make up the rules,
I only do what I’m told,
come what may.
And what I am told comes from you.
I am your humble servant.
‘I am the bureaucrat.’
