  1. Bastet says:

    Ah…the health business…
    I hope there is a place in Dante’s hell
    For those who speculate on people’s welfare;
    Better still, I would curse them to have to pay
    Every cent that they have leached,
    In a just Valhalla, created to reward
    All that they have sown.
    And every doctor’s careless glance
    And every agent’s no
    Would be another brick in the fortress
    That would imprision their sorded souls!
    I’d wish for them a Karma…but with full consciousness
    And know they then the misery that they have blithely blessed!
    And for the good doctors,
    A piece of heaven’s bliss
    For we know the infinite value
    Of a person who really cares
    In an age where only profit reigns.

      Amen! It has been said that one’s health is better than any riches, but to make riches off of other’s health is bad business and like you say devil work. Bastet, I’d also like to point out that you are composing verse in comment territory 🙂 Your comment should be a post of itself, I’m loving it!
