Payroll and the obedient servant's redress


His name was not in the paymaster's list and the whole wage has deducted for his food & lodging.

He sleeps under the huge thorny money tree
But the bitter fruits are not ripen yet.
Though he waits for the coming season
Yet he has to re-validate his torn season-ticket.
