“Rigid bureaucratic procedures,

Formal rules,

A plethora of grades and titles,

And much more besides” *



A march to stale directives,

All in rows,

A sigh and a cup of coffee,

And much more besides.



We dream of the next statistic,

And the goal,

We sing of  our analytics

And much more besides.



We live in our various hours,

Day and night,

To elude the target metrics,

And much more besides.


*Quote taken from “The Third Reich In Power” by Richard J. Evans
