Health Care

crowds gather
politics is going on
what are the questions of the day
how will we decide them

a voice is raised
my daughter, my friend, myself
is out of health
fill them again

a plan is formed
an implementation begun
other events intrude

other voices rise
they're dead 
don't waste the resources
stick with the temple

priests and money changers
our intermediaries with
a G*D too big to fail
are our only redemption

between not good enough
and a promise of better
some proceed quietly
with commotion all about

with a vision of sleep
instead of a despair of death
a third voice rises
little one arise

and the forgotten
lonely and lame are not left
a decision - a feast
a toast - l'chaim
