Poems on Life

Relic

They’ve finally managed it  
I heard it on the radio on my way  
they’ve done with it altogether  
it was just a minor irritant they found  
(whatever was left of it, that is)  
so they took it right out of the system  
the decision was taken at the highest levels  
the government machinery, everyone  agrees,  
should work so much better now,  
with this relic of bygone days,  
this leftover honesty  
completely gone
