For Everything Else There’s MasterCard

She killed her own grandmother to raise GDP
To keep her old hands from Social Security
She claimed that she died with dignity
(And saved a whole bunch of money)

No hospital bills that multiply
While heart thumps loud and lungs just sigh
No tears were shed, no need to cry
No need to watch her slowly die
Just pull the trigger, say goodbye.

      Thank you 🙂 Wow, indeed–though not true per se (thank goodness), I listened to a girl rant and followed her logic to its inevitable conclusion. I didn’t dare bring up the mentally retarded and disabled because I wouldn’t have been able to stand their verbal massacre.
