Job Fair

To be fair
if one man loses a kidney
his job, his home, the bank
because he’s out
one bad roll of the insurance dice
then another man
a wealthy one – a privileged one
many cars
many homes
many women
and so many kidneys he bets them at cards
that man gets drawn from the hat
and if a bum bounce
lands him at zero
where all is forfeit
he too gets the gnawed nut
on the thimblerig table
becoming the one man’s equal
in the healthcare casino
to be fair
this is the rule
draw after draw
until we can come for once
to be fair
