More Spice Is Needed - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Wouldn't they make better use of their time,
Investigating why their investigations
Need investigators who investigate?
Instead of wasting valuable resources...
Employing those selected to monitor
The actions of those responsible
For creating such tactics to spy
On each other's activities!
While illegal 'aliens' demand top dollar
For their silence and co-operation
In keeping the game of hide n' seek
A lucrative game they all share
In keeping their pockets full!
Any 'truths' overheard by wiretaps...
Are only ignored for lack of originality,
That feeds nothing to the imagination!
More spice is needed,
To implement a heightened excitement!
And perhaps that is why the whole process
Is constipated!
