Balancing the Books

Balancing the Books 

We got the welfare cheque for our cows last week,

It come out to about ten bucks a head.

CAIS Payment for Two Thousand Four,

was what the remittance slip said.

Well if you calculate the promised aid,

It don't add up some how,

The cost of writing and mailing the cheque,

ate up about ninety bucks a cow.

By the time the cash got filtered through,

All the layers of bureaucracy,

We got enough, to finally pay,

last year's Accountant's fee!
