       I made a song out of this poem. It's pretty good.

    Right here amongst thee
    In the land of the free
    Greed Supersedes all those in need
    You might agree, concept flawed to me
    We leave those in need, in needless bankruptcy

    And when you've lost your way
    When misfortune's met your day
    When things dont turnout okay
    Then will you see it my way?

    The sick on our soil, ignored, left foiled...
    As our elite-elect pick-n-select how exactly t’shell-out the spoils

    It may not be a civil right,
    like it is to read & write,
    dont mean it's not right,
    what about Human rights?

    You dont tie the tie till the shirt is on
    And you dont button your pants till after you put 'em on
    And you dont play the hit till you write the song
    And the night dont end till the sun says its dawn

    And you just roll your eyes and yawn, and say..
    Somebody's gotta be the pawn...Well...
    I dont want to be your pawn

    Go and turn your back to strife,
    you'll survive, but see, to me, it's more
    Its another human's life

    Your (socialist) paranoia,
    t'change, thrown 'round like loose change,
    ya know, It might just destroy ya.

    But Please, for me, just try to see, Please just ponder the plight
    Cuz Madam & Mister we're all brothers and sisters
    Health care (to me) should be a HUMAN RIGHT!

    How can we just sit there and watch, watch it like the clock,
    calm, As one of our own, alone, sits there and rots
    How could we just watch and stare, stare indifferent at care,
    apathetic, As one of our own, sick alone, seeks treatment with prayer

    And when you're in need of care, go and care away
    Left dying, wondering if Heaven's got a co-pay

    You dont tie the tie till the shirt is on
    And you dont button your pants till after you put 'em on
    And you dont play the hit till you write the song
    And the night dont end till the sun says its dawn

    But you just roll your eyes and yawn....

    Sure call me a socialist, As we stand together on this socialist encroachment
    Ya know, the road, our road, the same road, both leading us home
    Pick up a phone and call someone in the know

    How 'bout moral accountability, for us to live civilly
    We're only as strong as our weakest link
    You point to financial burdens, and how things will worsen
    Get Worse? Is that tongue in cheek?

    Funds are ample, says our budget for Bombs
    bombs, come before health?
    Sleep shade Blinders on, go on and singalong,
    Killing, killing in stealth

    How 'bout bombing the system...?
    Ya know, "the system," the system that missed ya

    It may not be a civil right, but what about Human rights?
    Since when's a life not a life? For real, is a life now not a Life?
