Our seniors are treated worse than animals. When will American's take a stand? When YOU are the one with an empty hand.


The chill is in the air Life just ain't always fair

The wind blows right through your clothes

Desperate and lonely

The plants hibernate

No food no money

People hesitate to smile

The Social Security System Depletes your life

The Welfare System Surrounds you in strife

You can't understand How you ended up here

You can't look forward to another long year

Your family's forgot you You are left alone

You have tattered clothing One room is your home

Your teeth are gone

Your dentures are broken

The Government renders you Hopelessly

choking  .....

Then comes INDIGESTION

THEN comes CONSTIPATION

Then comes ORGAN DYSFUNCTION

THEN comes the final FALL DOWN THE MOUNTAIN

Postitively good writing and making me glad to be alive even though this economy stinks and brings me to depression some days. I must be postive and forget the bad and carry on each day as best I can. That is my motto, do your best each day and never fail at things.

It is truly sad the way governments bleed those who have come to their final years hopint to reap the rewards of their labour. I worked for my government for 30 years and now with heart problems and diabetes they tell me I can not work anymore while giving me a pension so small it won't pay my rent or pills. I guess charity does not start at home when it comes to government services.

Hi, Karen Gallo-Dunn,

This is a well-written poem that seems to come from the soul of one who really cares about our elderly. I'm one of those elderly but still vibrant and active, thanks to God. But I know what you're saying about the sad condition of our System when it comes to social programs, especially for the more vulnerable elderly, not to mention our physically- and mentally-challenged citizens of all ages.

Our cultural problems are growing worse, thanks to greedy politicians who are allowing more and more people into the already fragile SYSTEM. The children of the elderly who seem not to care are only part of the problem. I want to believe that the majority do care about their elderly parents. I feel that they are caught up in the same trap their parents are caught in: a government system that won't let people get ahead so that they are ill-equipped financially to help their parents, even when they want to. Too busy with their own families and the never-ending struggle to "make ends meet."

This is a very sad poem that wiped the Christmas smile right off my face.

But it's REALITY and we must face it. Perhaps this will inspire people to take second looks at themselves and help their parents more. ... Even if it's a personal sacrifice, the joy you give your parents will be worth it.

As for our politicians: WE ELECTED THEM AND WE CAN FIRE THEM! We must all get on our soapboxes and write our legislators, encouraging them to improve Social Security and other social programs ... to write stronger laws to protect the vulnerable, ALL ill and elderly people of our society.
