I’m Ill

(To the tune of “I Will”) / Recording by David Simmons’

Who knows how long I’ll be here
I think I need a pill
My insurance doesn’t cover
Anything if I am ill

I must have medication
To flow inside my veins
Gotta buy it out of pocket
Little money lotsa pain

Medicines never work forever
It’s all the same refrain
Healthcare is ever stormy weather
Wish I could stop the rain

But one day when I’m healthy
A song will fill the air
And my smile will clearly show it
All my friends will surely know it
When the Facebook status quote for me
Says I am not ill
Not ill
