Hope, like a carrot before a mule

Is easily dangled before the disparate

With equal, if not, superior results.

Give the homeless hope

Give the bean counters numbers

Give the social workers pay raises

Give the medicos more patients

Give the “big pharmacies more ‘scripts”

Give the bankers deposits

Only the ones that count have positive outcomes…

But that’s not our problem…

…or is it?
