Liverpool Care Pathway

The Liverpool Care Pathway
Sends the useless mouths away.
If you're taken really sick
It can kill you off quite quick;
And it makes a lot of dough
For all those who're in the know.

Crippled babies or old folk,
Can be swiftly made to croak;
For they'll never be of use
To the rich who rule the roost.
They could cut the deficit
Even more if throats were slit.

Mark 2 now, after a bit of fiddling about. Sounds better to me.

PS 13-07-13 The news claims this is to be phased out, due to abuse. Apparently hospitals were given financial incentives to use it. It involves killing them off by withdrawing fluids so they die of thirst.
