What is the meaning of this poem?

Wrap me in paperwork
To cover up the cracks
Evaluate my worthiness
To calculate my tax
Privatise the atmosphere
And charge me by the breath
Bind me into servitude
Employ me half to death
See I'm put into pasture
When I'm unfit for the herd
And sell me by the word
Then reduce me to a metaphor
