The Un-Entitled

Get this straight,
In the US Healthcare is not a Right
It is an entitlement
And the entitlement is determined along economic lines
This entitlement creates a second class of citizen
The swath of people who cannot afford such entitlements
As seeing a doctor when they have a chronic cough
Or when they pull a muscle at work
Or when they fell down the stairs that one time they were drunk and stupid
Let alone afford their blood pressure medication
Or the baby aspirin that might keep a stroke or heart attack at bay.
Some people just aren’t entitled to those things
They can’t afford to get sick and miss work,
Let alone afford the care to get better
And so they suffer and continue to suffer
And so it shall be for the foreseeable future

Human Limitations

Are we all that

Enlightened, educated

Cultured and sophisticated?

 

We have the resources and abilities

To cure many of the World’s infirmities

But we don’t

Because there’s no money in it

That is why we are not civilized

And that is why we are a failed species

 

Ask yourself again

Are we all that

Enlightened, educated

Cultured and sophisticated?
