A message for April 1st 2006

ONE civil servant with nothing to do,got an assistant,and then there were two

TWO civil servants kept the job alive,'til more were appointed,and then there were five

FIVE civil servants slaving with the pen,formed a department, and then there were ten

TEN civil servants,you'd think would be plenty,but being a department,extended to twenty

TWENTY civil servants with a head so haughty,doubled his number and then there were forty

FORTY civil servants with reasons good and weighty,needed assistants and then there were EIGHTY

So the game went on and on - it's really rather fun,to make a HUNDRED joblets where formerly was one
