JUST SLIGHTLY…OUT OF WHACK

JUST SLIGHTLY…OUT OF WHACK

We have the money she said,

To buy that folding bed…

I’ll just call,

Confirming it all–

But the phone was dead!

HIS MANTLE—DISMANTLED

HIS MANTLE—DISMANTLED

 

A lot of equipment stored,

Is going by the board…

What will be kept

And not dissect,

And can the company this afford?

The insides are being dismantled,

Deluxe water treatment cancelled…

What to do with tanks,

Machines and banks

Of electrical switches unmanacled?   

Good equipment can be sold,

Other stuff is really too old…

Into the dumpster

Recycled and done, sir,

Into bed frames, I’m told.

THE “AFFORDABLE” CARE

THE “AFFORDABLE” CARE

(Economic-political opinion)

Supposed to make care “affordable”,

In newspapers it is recordable…

The little guy pays

While corporations walk away,

And redress is not supportable.

It’s always the fine print,

That bites in the butt without squint…

To see what is there

Before people care

To go try to buy a law splint.

Sounds like we’re stuck with paying

While fat cats are constantly “yay-ing”…

Loopholes this day

Drive “affordable” away,

Can we take any more Party braying?
