In My Day

In My day, if there was a welfare line I would have been in it
If there was a homeless shelter, I would have sought a bed
If there was universal health care, I would have enrolled

In my day, if there were wheel chairs, I would have been in one
If there was disability insurance, I would have certainly qualified
If there was cash and or general asistance, I would have accepted

But in my day, such things were not available to me.  So I had to
Beg, pray, hope, and wait because I was an invalid who waited at a
Pool for 38 years.  That's when a man asked me if I wanted to get
Well and I said yes.  He commanded me to get up and walk, and
That is what I did.  My name is Matman; his name was Jesus.*

*John 5:1-9
