Since I learned to stand up for myself, to yell about my statutory rights
and fight back against the rumbling,
selfish, careless, antagonistic, demeaning, unpleasant, arrogant, inept,
corrupt machine I have had penalties overturned, seen
expenses refunded, been compensated for my troubles,
I have earned bonus points, been awarded air miles, received
coupons and vouchers,
been presented with gifts, opened the post to find cheques,
CDs, DVDs, books, tickets, teabags, chocolates, cereal bars,
honey and I have received hampers
and grovelling letters of apology.
