Rules - Poem by gershon hepner
The Japanese and Germans love the rules
Italians and most Frenchman live without;
while Jews think rules are meant for fools,
and rules are what they mostly like to flout.
Hezbollah and Hamas have hardly any,
but if you don't obey them they will kill you,
while lawyers love all rules because so many
put money in their pockets when they bill you.
The British don't need rules since they're polite,
Iranians do, but not from ayatollahs,
while in their long day's journey into night
the Russians need them more than they need dollars.
Most Democrats like rules as much as taxes;
the voters don't, but no one really listens.
Republicans preach rules they do not practice,
and everyone agrees we need more prisons.
