Elimination of Stress and Strife in My Life

Broke the Rules...
Left some clues...
I'm a fool...
Living in a cesspool...

I hear the economy is bad...

And getting worse each day...

Although it hasn't affected me in any way..

I can even keep kosher if I choose..

So what do I have to lose? ...

I get three meals a day..

And sometimes a snack...

Clean clothes everyday I put on my back..

Excercise is a daily routine..

that I choose to do..and it keeps me lean..

My quarters are small..but after all..

We have a room with a big color TV...

And a place for family and friends who visit me...

Healthcare? not a problem you see..

As I don't pay for insurance like thee...

Problem with teeth...rectified

Education, Degree, I can even be Certified..

Because unlike you, who lives outside..

You need to work to survive...

Now I'm a part of the system you see..

And have it much easier than any of thee..

I broke the law and now pay the price...

But I'm still better off than your lousy life...

And when I'm released, I will qualify for...

Medicaid, Medicare and even more...

So you may have done it different than me...

But in 'old age ', we're equal you see?

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
