PRICES OF DEVICES.
Is it me? Or do I see
in the modern economy
to do with disability?
When I look at health devices,
then I look at all their prices,
what I can see surprises me,
for there seems inequality.
I think it’s diabolical
with prices astronomical
and when the cost is so inflated
just because it’s health-related.
It must be very wrong indeed
when people are in dire need
to rig the price of goods so high
that only rich people can buy.
It’s hard enough for them each day,
without the fact they have to pay
over the odds for what they need
because of someone else’s greed.
I think sick and disabled folk
should not be burdened by the yoke
of funding those who profiteer
from the making of their gear.
It’s just as well that charities
can help with these disparities
otherwise, their lives might be
more of a catastrophe.
There’s something rotten to the core
when people try to profit more
from those disabled people who
may not even have a clue.
Devices should be made non-profit,
so no one can make money off it.
