The words step out from heavy textured paper;
they mean business. No one should take them for ‘small print’.
They are your insurance policy and in your face;
“we are in a ‘fiduciary relationship’
and you had better spill the beans, tell all
and by no means imagine the worst:
so you are an accident of birth, yet somehow it gets
…better, and you happened to be not thinking
when you voted for Murphy’s law, and had his chips.
Go on, make your list of trips and slips,
the casual mishaps, while tracing the lemming’s route
to disaster, and sign. No leaky biros please
or next year’s date. “
