Though everything is digitised –
Of course, of course, it’s digitised –
They’re only trying to be safe.
A paper file is always safe.
A file with copies, doubly safe.
Two copies this, three copies that.
Signature this, signature that.
A queue for this, two queues for that.
Though everything is digitised.
But so and so didn’t need all this?
Oh ho! I get it, get it now.
A single paper, coloured green,
Is all you ever needed, right?
Why didn’t you say so earlier?
Of course, of course, I should have known.
That step cannot be digitised.
