 once upon a time

No Cure 

Phone home, why, there's no one there.

Okay, though how come nobody's there.

Well it's a long  short story, that defined 

a life well lived. What happened the short

story, wee Liz died.


The long story is the indifference of doctors

towards her illness, making her wonder at 

what they were waiting for. Today I wonder

Was it big business curtailing investment in 

making cures available. 


When or if they phone home, taking themselves 

away from making money, do they ever wonder

on the plight of loved ones dying from so called

Incurable illness Probably not,wouldn't be part of their 

remit to show compassion. After all it's capitalism 

bottom line must show, that the long story of 

costly welfare will continue.


Decency and humanity we leave to the do gooders.

smart guys know that gullible fools abound.

And our only phone call is to make more money.

Our wonderful long story is profiting from profitable drugs.
