“I am sorry, but the bridge can’t get the foundation it needs there, it might even fall”

“But we need it, it will be a gold mine.”

“I can’t risk people’s lives”

“Why don’t you give me your bank account number?”

 
And the bridge stood there for a year.
110 died later when it collapsed.

    55 words, addressed so many issues all at once.
    Amazingly written.

    Thought the article deserved a special comment,
    so tried to wrap it up in 55 fiction style too.

    Taking bribe is the second largest problem, the largest being offering it.

    Amongst the heavy price rise, the only thing becoming cheap are human lives.
