Underbelly

Sometimes you wonder

If the people on the prescribing side of red tape

Realize how debilitating some of their rules and regulations actually are.

To those that sit in board rooms and offices

Making rules for the rest of us,

It is important to remember that beyond the neatly written bullet points

And well articulated stipulations are

Actual people.

Trying to make life work.

The gravity of life itself is heavy enough to overcome

Without the man made boundaries that may as well be shackles

Holding us all back.

Bureaucracy has a shiny veneer of order

But an underbelly of stifled dreams and sluggish processes.
