Politics - not Stamford

I was reacting to some political news recently
and i find my heart burning.
The cry for less Government
is being hailed as something good,
but what i see is that effects the poorest
and least able to care for themselves.
The proposed New York City Budget,
cut services to the mentally retarded.
Churches do not pick up the slack, they simply do not have the commitment.
But this is how it is, the least able to defend themselves are the first to be cast off.
It makes my heart burn.
This is the selfishness of people,
"I want to be taken care of, to hell with everyone else!"
Let them live that cry,
it is shallow
and will bring them and us no good.
