Frustration

Frustration

All you have to do…
Hurry, scurry,
Like a hamster on a wheel,
Time passing by
But I’m standing still.

All you have to do…
Red tape, security,
Everything has changed.
Travel to the Embassy
Then return home again.

No, not here at all,
Home Affairs denies,
Pretoria’s the place to go,
Foreign Affairs will help,
Here’s their address.

All you have to do…
Two steps forward
And slide back four.
Red Tape and bureaucracy,
Thwart me to the core.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!
