Federal Workers in Dire Straits

 

Federal Workers in Dire Straits

 

By Elton Camp

 

After days without getting pay

Some seek to find another way

 

Park ranger:  “For a tank of gas,

Along this trail you may pass.”

 

Said a guard at the National Zoo:

“For a meal, I’ll show it to you.”

 

“I’ll slyly process your passport

If my family you help support.”

 

“A gun permit I’ll secretly issue

If my automobile repair you’ll do.”

 

A NSA worker didn’t think it rude:

“Will listen to your calls for food.”

 

Resorting to barter becomes the game

As all decide who they should blame

 

But the IRS is right there to get tax

For sending it in, don’t dare be lax
