The New York Times Headline catches my eye,
“Chefs, Butlers, Marble Baths: Hospitals Vie for the Affluent”,
Something here seems quite incongruent,
When many can’t afford healthcare,
The elite receive more than their share,
There is no logic there to follow,
It’s a very bitter pill to swallow,
Capitalism truly put to the test,
Survival of the fittest and then screw the rest?
What’s at the heart, what makes this system tick?
It’s an odd thing when a healthcare system is sick.
