Death by Profit

The biggest struggles after passing fifty
aren’t the ailments appearing as if by magic,
but those wanting a controlling interest in your eventual demise.
The long walk to the grave passes fewer helping hands
than greedy hands seeking profit before you’re part of the land.
Why must human beings be priced to sell?
