what is
to Health?

are We
to be asked
to care
for each other?


what care i
if you were born sick
while i was blessed well?

and what care you
if tragedy strikes me
as i go about my day?

why should you have to pay
for my accidental pain?

Rain falls only on the worthy
does it not?

Sun shines only on the worthy
does it not?

who are these crackly-faced-pale old men
(with guaranteed golden hospitals)
safely sequestered in locked rooms
deciding who is worthy of Care?

do they imagine themselves
more qualified than the Sky

to apply
such judgments?
