The mandate got no real support,
To go by what was said,
In arguments before the court -
It might as well be dead.
The issue causing all the fuss
Is this: Can we be made
to buy some thing that’s good for us
like brocc’li, I’m afraid?
But if you don’t buy broccoli
That’s certainly OK,
Your protest does no harm to me
In any kind of way.
But if you’re with the uninsured
And you get sick some day
Then for your treatment I’m assured
We'll be the ones who pay.
