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
