A Health Insurance Limerick by Troy Camplin The Society May 19, 2014 Humor, Poetry 2 Comments The cost of insurance was such Its price I could sadly not touch — So I gave all of that To a young bureaucrat And now it costs three times as much!

Reply state farm niles April 18, 2020 Hello, I’m not a fan of insurance because I prefer to put my trust in Our Creator rather than corporations who do their best to overcharge and never payout even when they should. It is a decision each person must make for themselves.
