Obamacare. - Poem by A.j. Binash

New legislation dictated-
If The Poor were hungry
They had to live inside a
5x5 mesh cage.

They did as told.

Two lines
Stood the Public.
They were each given
A ration of one

Some used their double joints
While others practiced a follow through
…Tossing said egg at the mesh cages.

Coating the metal stitching
In dripping yolk.

What dried and crusted inside
The holes of the metal webbing

Was the food for The Poor.

While they ate
The Public chanted:
“Be happy we even gave you that! ”
And the favorite:
“To want more is socialism! ”

After the last egg
Was released…

Section Two
Of the new legislation
Required them
To clean up
The egg shells
Shattered about their feet.

They did as told.

While a chant echoed:
“Be grateful you have something to do! ”

All the while
The Public ignored the fact
That their taxes
Paid for the eggs.

Making The Chickens
Nothing but wealthy.
