Documents; documents; documents;
In government and businesses galore,
Charities, et cetera
Fight the bloody paper war.
Call it documentamania,
The modern world’s mental illness disgrace.
Those trees cut down; ink consumed,
That’s not to mention storage space.
Documents; documents; documents,
I’d say over a trillion.
Got four hundred of my own,
Paper trade itself’s worth billions.
And if they filmed a documentary
On documentamania scenes,
The whole film’s length in seconds
Would outnumber coffee beans.
Because coffee is so drinkable
It’s overconsumed, and it’s bitter.
So much literature it’s unthinkable
Ends up as tons of litter.
By Michael Dunningham
THE NUT WHO HIT THE NAIL ON THE HEAD
So you tell us that we’re nutters
‘Cause we gotta take the pills.
But if you think your mental health’s perfect
That delusion shows you’re ill.
Nobody’s mental health’s that good
Bad habits affect us all,
And is sharing problems therapy
When your back’s against the wall?
If some of us are really nuts
Is therapy a spanner?
Hit the nail on the head, we all need help,
That message should be hammered.
