This poem is dedicated to Ron Markowicz. Ron lives in Las Vegas, NV where he has been fighting for his life and family for the past 2 years. His fight is what many across the U.S. suffer from and wait for repeated silence, injustice, fraudulent and unethical practices. The problem and fight is regarding Workers Compensation in our U.S. If you have an expectation or assumption that you will be protected if ever injured on the job, think again my friends!
The poem I wrote below is my personal attempt to reach the media and anyone who can help what appears to be numerous victims of the worst system we rely on. In my review of Ron's story, and others recently, Workers Compensation is acting equally as thieves. If we don't do something, we could be the next victim. Exposing insurance companies such as Crawford & Co and pursuing the Supreme Court if necessary, is the only way these type of scam artist can be stopped from taking away all you have worked hard your entire life for. Look for more blog entries coming soon on Workers Compensation issues in our country.
Blowing In the Wind
We expect promised rights for a hard working life
From the time we are old enough to read
We are taught goodness prevails for a man who works with great strife
So, how does the good man fall down, and get left blowing in the wind?
Consider a 25 year consistent worker, taxpayer and good historian
Who did as he was taught, dedicated and true American citizen
Never begging for handouts, only providing for himself with integrity and desire
Then suddenly, something fails, and he is left blowing in the wind
One day, in the food industry career that had brought him great favor
Was a simple matter of water lying on the kitchen floor
The dishwasher had leaked, and leaving an accident to happen
There came Ron into the wet floor, and away blowing in the wind
Blowing in the wind that is now what Ron Marcowicz does daily
With one fall, how one's life changes dramatically
The problem is that Ron had to learn more lessons than imagined
Now he was dealing with disability and a system of cruelty
Ron found his life disabled along with a flurry of injustice
Workers Comp fraudulent & unethical insurance acts
From Nevada's elected, Senator Reid and Congress Rep Titus
Governor and Mayor Goodman's office refuse to help, and they all have the facts!
Ron's home has already reached foreclosure due payments that lack
Workers Comp System refusing to pay and lying behind every one's back
Threatening the doctors so they deny Ron service, for they fear injustice
Add to that the back surgeon who should be pursued for malpractice
To survive, Ron has had the fight of his life
He doesn't understand why those in able positions
Have ignored his pleas for help and his well deserving rights
Why do they allow him to blow in the wind?
As a handful of supporters make phone calls and written requests
To Nevada officials, TV and News journalists and radio stations across the US
Even a journalist who covered Ron's story but fails to publish
This is overwhelming, criminal and plain right foolish
If only all these who ignorantly turn away and pull their politics
Understood that at any moment their life and expectations could sway away
Their fall could be so drastic & they will expect their insurance
Along with support by officials, but it all could go blowing in the wind
Please wake up and see what you have not done for yours
Choose to attain to that which you promised as your purpose
Don't allow a human being so close to your hands
Be left blowing in the wind!
Why do I care about this man I have never seen or met?
My purpose was found through a surprising fall
And after I worked 21 years of my life
I was afraid me & my daughter would be left blowing in the wind
But God did find angels along my path
Many times as I had to push and pull my life along
I was caught by a system that did not fail me
And all my fears went blowing in the wind
So my plea is that there will be angels that will cross Ron's path
Who will fulfill their duties to include justice and their promises at last
Reach out to a fellow American whose life and family are falling fast
Please stop the wind, before they are lost, and let them stand still
