Untitled Poem

I don’t have health insurance

But I sure have heart disease

And the people in our government

Want to hear me beggin’ “please, please, please.”


I’ve worked here in the USA

Paid taxes, felt the squeeze

Taken care of others , without ever asking

For “please, please, please”


Social Security is a lie

Leaves you dangling in the breeze

It chews you up, and spits you out

Till you cry “please, please, please!”


Well I’m a man who’s dignified

I won’t get on my knees

I want what’s mine; I earned it

No damned “please, please, please!”


So when this story and I come to pass

Tell 'em this man disagrees

With the idea that we all should bow

Asking “please, please, please”
