A government Document waxes philosophical about its life journey as it waits to be shredded. It looks back on its creation as a policy paper, its hopes, dreams and ambitions. Coming in close contact with the heights of power, its pride grows until the Document expects more from life than its early humble hopes. With the announcement of the policy contained within the Document, it revels in the bright lights and attention, only to find that the good times end too soon. No longer useful and designated for destruction, the Document finally realises it was never any better or worse, more important or less, than anyone else. And that in the end we're all just fodder for the shredder.
