Jeff R.: Scene from Dystopia! The Musical
Times are rough
And you're suffering through.
Need a shoulder to cry on to.
Well I say
There's a way
You can bailout your blues:
You just sign
On the line
Of form nineteen stroke two.
CHORUS OF CLERKS:
Saves the nation
Leave the station
Why, it's even better than-)
Master the skill
And you can fill
out any form we can give.
Then just sign on the dotted line if you want to live!
LEAD BUREAUCRAT, spoken:
We'll want that in triplicate, please.

Jeff R.:Another Scene from Dystopia! The Musical
Was born in a tube,
Raised in a box.
Learned how to steal,
Learn to pick locks.
It was not an easy live to live, out on the street.
Taking money from Alphas just to live, for something to eat.
Morality and sanity were never on my plate
On good days, maybe rice and beans and goo.
To feed a mighty hunger something ever seemed to sate
A treadmill running landing me in front...of...you
So I'm pleading for the mercy of the State
JUDGE (Spoken): Mercy? For the likes of you? (Slowly Turns Thumb Downward.)

Jeff R: The Collector's Solo
Applied to every kind
Of purchase, or activity's too onerous to bear
But be aware
Of the undoubtable facts:
There's nothing that's too trivial to tax!
We'll charge a penny for your loafers,
And to keep away the gophers,
That's weekly dime, tacked on your yearly price.
And look: you rushed right through your shave
A pity that you didn't save
I'd say that half a cent per whisker will suffice.
I see you say 'that's splitting hairs,'
And I agree, so to be fair
I guess I'll simply have to charge you for them twice!
