For the ones who can afford it?
The ones who don’t have pre-existing conditions?
The ones who easily comply?
The ones who “get it”?
Or perhaps the ones already educated about health,
The ones who won’t miss appointments
Or ask dumb questions
Or make unreasonable demands?
Or perhaps its for the ones who can really speak up for themselves?
The ones who know how to “exercise the right to not die of a preventable disease?”
Maybe its for people who live in ‘nicer’ countries with money to spare
Or with leaders who care?
For those with access to private jets
And private nurses
Or have the phone number of the specialist in town?
Maybe it’s for a future generation
that doesn’t have our inequality
Nor our ‘brain drain’
Nor our underfunded health care systems run by overpaid officials
Who do not utilise the very health care they provide their own citizens.
Maybe it’s for a future generation that
One day will answer the question of
“Who is good health care for?”
“Anyone who needs it.”
