BIFFIS, William, (Bill) In loving memory of a dear son, brother and uncle, who was talented in so many ways. This is one of many poems he wrote.
Men of the Mouth
I get upset when I'm timed and paced,
By certain "Officials" of the human race,
They give me a collar I'm supposed to wear,
Then take half my income and tell me to share.
They put me on hold and tell me to wait,
And when they're ready to talk it's always too late,
What shall we do with these men of the mouth,
Who we always elect and yet always doubt?
They weasel their way onto Parliament Hill,
Spend lots of money and stick us with the bill,
They'll decide later on how to solve our troubles,
For now they are busy on the court playing doubles.
Then they'll raise their voices and bang their shoes,
And demand higher pay for the things that they do,
Now look - how they whine and groan on the TV screen,
Explaining how last year's budget wasn't so Keen.
But they claim they have an answer,
to keep you from going to pieces,
Yet don't expect to hear from them,
Well not till after recess.
Always near to us,
Love, Mom, Dad and family
