Cut Down

They bought lawnmower after lawnmower
as if they had lots of cash or they had grassland
yet they wanted to bid on government contracts
to cut the unkempt hair of government officials!

They brought razor blade after razor blade
as if they wanted to cut the long nails of officials
yet all they sought to do was to move from shop
to shop in order to cut down the prices of goods!
