The Moochers

Old folks
don’t need money for food;
they can go to a soup kitchen
and eat for free.

Senior citizens
don’t need money for housing;
they can sleep under a bridge somewhere -
lots of people do already.

Golden agers
don’t need money for heating bills;
they can go to Florida in the winter
like everyone else.

Retired people
don’t need money for medical care;
they’re going to keep getting sick
and will die soon anyway.
