Good on paper

Its a strange set of affairs
To call something a success
On paper
That is a real life disaster.
A managerial success
But a lemon for those on the ground,
An elaborate protocol
But a chaotic experience for everyone it comes in contact with
A sound policy
But an unsound society
Plenty of charm
But no real affection
Fervent religion
But unaffected hearts.
This is the challenge for those that do
Those that make plans for doing
And those that have things done to them-
Its not enough to make an effort
And merely busy ourselves
With low hanging fruit.
It is not much good
If its only good on paper.
