Systems, efficient systems and
sweet, seamless, standard operating procedures (SSSOP)
Perfect pea protocol
and primordial pea procedures (PPPPPP)
Line them up, pea by pea,
Sit them in silence not a pea out of place (POOP),
Tell them they’re a disgrace,
Drill them with drive,
To keep them just alive.
Sit them in rows,
Not passive, not assertive,
Not different, not the same,
Allow them a voice,
As long as it is one voice and it is
Green, and sweetly deferentially pleasant.
THERE IS NOTHING WRONG HERE
If a pea is out of place then
Send the pea out of this place
And roll the sweet rows back again,
As if the rogue pea never was.
And never will be.
There is no space for chaos here.
Anger can be managed
And behaviour modified.
THAT IS NOT A PROBLEM.
If we let chaos in we may never get out.
Wait at the door to count them in and out
While recording precisely the time of counting and the
And the what for.
Share the counting and time of counting
Countless times to other watchers
And interested parties
So that they too can
Shout the chaos down.
Be sure to set a target for the next counting,
And count up and down again to calm
Your steely nerves
