Once I Was Like You Acrostic
Needed to wear a tie
Comb my hair, a fix myself for presentation daily
End happened rather suddenly
I had a zombie bite my right ankle almost died
Was back to work in no time at all
Almost made it back to being like you
Sadly, another zombie bite and gone was my left foot.
Like you, I had insurance first time.
I tried obamacare second time
Kind of sick how the government destroyed America
Even so, I tried yet again only to lose again.
You ever realize you are looser too late in life.
Opened my eyes after a year
Unlike most I could not live in America I left, good bye
