In Sickness…

to whom society has given the most
owe the most
when societal consent allows
the arterial bloodways of our economy
to become clogged by the hording of wealth
to become brittle by the exploitation of labor
that society is as complicit
in its economic failure
as any one person would be
of his or her own wellness
through personal gluttony and sloth
the American dream
is going into cardiac arrest
attacked by the neglect
paid its own heart
