Indemnity

tail2 

So many leeches preying
on the frail – a grey
industry veiled by claims
of justice in indemnity

A feeding frenzy alright
for anyone who’s claim
spirals to major repair
from broken tail-light

Ethics lost set values
where ego judgements
gouge rather than be
deemed to make repairs

It’s an insurance claim
they say – no-one really
pays so how’s that a
breach of morality?

It is in inflated grins of
skimmers glibly taking
their prodigious share –
padded maliciously
