Essentially Expendable

To be saved is to be provoked;
to believe that a message 
is true if it saves your life.
How can you be comfortable 
and still thirst for more comfort?
Which is worth more?
A twelve hundred dollar band-aid? 
Or a six hundred dollar band-aid?
Signs and standing ovations applaud
and promote service workers
to the rare air of being essential.
     (Essential really means expendable.)
We need healers who walk in the ancient ways.
