a cheap death

the idea of dying
in a hospital
horrifies me
the knowledge that
all i could leave
is astronomical bills

i will likely die
in misery at home
secure in the knowledge
i didn’t saddle
my loved ones with
a mountain of debt

that says something
about the terrible state
of healthcare here
government funded addiction
overvaluing profits
while undervaluing life

  1. When the time comes I’ll take you on a nice, long hike, my friend. Somewhere beautiful.

    3 may have to loan me some ammo though, that shit’s getting expensive and I’m saving my last shell for the mailman.
