Elimination Of Stress And Strife In My Life - Poem by K J Force

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?
