Fingerprints taken, photos made –
In anticipation of the secrets – to you conveyed.
Sign the documents, your oath to keep –
Not to utter a word, not as much as a peep.
Knowledge is power –
And power is not to be shared –
The secrets you hold –
To “need to know” only –
Ever shall be declared.
It is the state of things –
In the now and here –
It’s a lot of hassle –
About a recipe for beer.
