The whole system has crossed the line, take my heart!

Desperate to save his dying son does anyone care.

Valued only by the type of his insurance, take my heart!

The worth of his child’s life becomes not much around a table.

Take my heart! he says, they say no, this is not how it works,

Policy and politics are a crime when it comes to a life.

He would sacrifice everything, risk his life for his son,

” You have no money,” they say with such a look, take my heart!

People die every day, just the way it is when your value is little,

A son survives, a hospital does not want to look bad,

Why could they not do this from the start, take my heart!
