At The Strawfields, 4

[after Exodus 5]


(dedicated to all employees of all call centers)


These Hebrew slaves just will not understand

the written policies that guide this land;

the information that may meet disclosure

rules, and the problems that increase exposure

when facts are not entirely verified,

or odd exceptions that seek override.

Complaining that they have to gather straw

to mix with mud to make the bricks we need,

they know full well Pharaoh expects of all

his people---servants, clerks, and slaves---compliance

with bis directives.  (Any questions?---read

the update issued lately.)  Yet, despite

our candid explantion, they unite

in dirty looks' and muttered words' defiance.
