Richard Schnap- A Poem


There was one for magazine subscriptions
To tell people what to believe
And one for police associations
In case someone needed their help
And one for custom-made windows
So the world outside looked less dirty
And one for political prisoners
To lessen the guilt of being free

And one for symphony tickets
So musicians would still have a job
And one for endangered animals
Before they became someone’s shoes
And one for public television
In case there was nothing else to watch
And one for tax-free insurance
Making death the ultimate investment
