RIC S. BASTASA


BUREAUCRATIC RED TAPE


Juan de la Cruz hates it.

He goes to Mr. X of
Department Y, and he is shown
a list of requirements from
1 to 10, and upon seeing 1
there is a sub-list of requirements
from a to f,
and then he is referred to Mr. Z
of Department T,
saying there is a need to
attend to a seminar of sort,
and then pay, this and that and this
and that,

when all he is asking
is that the slight cut on his hand
be dressed.

And said, “I can summon a million of men
To fight for their country and Kaiser;
