The Health Care Seed
With apologies to Ruth Krauss and Crockett Johnson
A Little President planted a health care seed.
The Speaker said, “I’m afraid they won’t sign up.”
The Senate Minority Leader said, “I’m afraid they can’t sign up.”
And the Supreme Court Justice said, “They shan’t sign up.”
Every day the Little President pulled up the bugs
around the seed and sprinkled the ground with facts.
But no one signed up.
And no one signed up.
Everyone kept saying “No one signed up!”
But he still pulled up the bugs around it every day
and sprinkled the ground with facts.
And then, one day,
health care for all came up.
Just as the Little President had known it would.
Those of an earlier vintage may wish to substitute
The Little Healthcare.gov That Could.
