I Get Tired of the Country's System

I get tired of the country's system 

I'm not sure we listen to ourselves
"I won't pay your wages, but here's what I'll do, I'll hike up the fuel prices so you have to pay more to get to work, I'll charge ridiculous amounts for your child's tuition fees, I'll frustrate the traders with fees that have long names so they'll increase prices of goods, I still won't pay your wages. Don't go on strike tho, if you do, I'll call you lazy and start another institution to compete with the one I've not paid you for working in. Unity! Freedom! Transformation! Power to the masses!"

I get really tired of the country's system 

You tell me you can give me a wheelchair, but first, "write a 10-page essay on why you should get this wheelchair that you can't afford, type it on brown paper, put it in a green envelope, hand-deliver it to the state furthest from you, then, only then, do you stand a chance to get this rusty contraption"

Hey Smart-ass! I'm sitting on the floor with no kneecaps. Go figure. 

I get sick of this country's system 

Memo reads:
Dear tired old women, I'm moving your market to the part of the state furthest from convenience. Guess what? I'll be sure to remove you violently, you know, mistakenly shoot a son or five. I'll charge you absurdly for the stores too. Now, cheer, wave the 2 kobo handkerchiefs I was kind enough to give you and adore me. 

I get really tired of the country's system, but it's my country, not theirs alone, and so, I'll keep trying to love it back to sanity.
