Bureaucracy Gone Mad. Again


A mother here in Adelaide

Her council made their mark

By fining ’cause magician

Birthday’d in their park


No-one was offended

No-one did complain

Bureaucracy it just went mad

(Here we go again)


More concerned they were to

Uphold the letter law

The other side was unimportant

It’s spirit they ignored


Rules are for the guidance

Of wise men as their tools

They’re also there for blind obedience

Obedience of fools
