With the Supreme Court of the United States now debating whether the Federal Government can force health insurance upon all of its citizens,(at taxpayer expense) I thought this poem may be appropriate to the occasion. Also, as an aside I have added my opinion, as to such governments and their personal protection legislations.
As my wife and I are polar opposites politically, I have indeed, stolen her accidental creativity, and used it to my advantage and credit, as promised…

AN ACCIDENTAL TRUTH
My wife has coined a phrase,
completely, without intention,
though, I will probably, eventually,
take credit, for its invention.
We were discussing the nation’s woes,
when, she meant to say, D.C.,
then out it came, the appropriate name,
of Washington, disease.
We as a people,
should be wary and distrustful of any government,
which legislates, to protect us, from our very selves.
When it is from said government, that we are in need,
of the most protection!
