A Dream of Roses


Or not.


How Government Works...

Once upon a time the government had a vast scrap yard in the middle of a desert. Congress said, "Someone may steal from it at night." So they created a night watchman position and hired a person at $18,000.00 a year for the job.

Then Congress said, "How does the watchman do his job without instruction?" So they created a planning department and hired two people, one person to write the instructions for $22, 000.00, and one person to do time studies for an additional $22,000.00 per year.

Then Congress said, "How will we know the night watchman is doing the tasks correctly?" So they created a Quality Control department and hired two people. One to do the studies for $31, 000.00 and one to write the reports for an additional $31,000.00 per year.

Then Congress said, "How are these people going to get paid?" So they created the following positions, a time keeper for $35, 000.00 annual salary, and a payroll officer for an additional $35,000.00, then hired two people.

Then Congress said, "Who will be accountable for all of these people?" So they created an administrative section and hired three people, an Administrative Officer at $155, 000.00 per year, Assistant Administrative Officer $125,000.00, and a Legal Secretary for an additional $100,000.00 per year.

Then Congress said, "We have had this operating for one year with a budget cost of $574, 000.00 and we are $18,000 over budget. We must cutback overall cost."

So they laid off the night watchman.

Time After Time

To Sidney...

"Time After Time"
Lyrics ©1983 by C.Lauper & R.Hyman
.
Lying in bed I hear the clock tick and think of you
Caught up in circles confusion is nothing new
Flashbacks warm nights almost left behind
Suitcase and memories time after…

Sometimes you picture me I’m walking too far ahead
You're calling to me I can't hear what you've said

[Chorus:]

Then you say go slow, I fall behind
The second hand unwind
If you’re lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you I'll be waiting
Time after time
If you're lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you I’ll be waiting
Time after time

After my picture fades and darkness has turned to gray
Watching through windows you're wondering if I'm ok
Secrets stolen from deep inside
The drum beats out of time


[Chorus:]
If you’re lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you I'll be waiting
Time after time
If you're lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you I’ll be waiting

-------bridge------

Then you say go slow, I fall behind
The second hand unwind
If you’re lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you I'll be waiting
Time after time
If you're lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you I’ll be waiting
Time after time

Time after time
time after time
time after...
