Douglas Polk- Two Poems

To Govern

the law of the jungle overturned,
and upside down,
the weak encouraged to devour the strong,
dependency allowed to flourish,
the senate out of oxygen,
the house a divide,
the art of governance,
a memory,
it has already died.


money not saved,
neither are lives,
healthcare a facade,
people still die,
but go ahead,
and place the blame,
doctors and hospitals punished,
it's all a game,
make people think,
the new wonder drug,
it doesn't protect,
it doesn't cure,
insurance is nothing,
only a word,
time will prove this is so,
risk is inherent in the act of living,
security an illusion,
named insurance.
