Cost-Cutters But Not Doctors

 

 

Health insurance companies make little sense.

You might even say they’re a health care menace.

When medical decisions

Are made by business minions,

They’re practicing medicine without a license.

 

 

 

What Are They Gonna Do With It?

 

 

The Republicans are not feeling up to par,

Because they’re not too happy where they are.

They chased and chased

And won the race.

They are like the cartoon dog that caught the car.

 

 

 

Something’s Missing

 

 

The universe, or god, or call it what you will,

Has no awareness or conscience as it works its will.

It has no sense of self,

Since it lacks something else,

And in its unconsciousness, it can’t be still.

 

 

 

Drama Kings And Queens

 

 

When political speech is said to cause traumas,

Then campus “doctors” act like hovering mamas.

Don’t these stupid leftists realize

That illness shouldn’t be trivialized?

Too, students shouldn’t have to face nutty dramas.
