A Racket Rant

As we grow old our hearing dwindles:  fact
Electronic gadgetry can help us:  fact
A decent laptop computer
with multi-functional wizardry
costs peanuts:  fact

So why do hearing aids still cost the earth?
They’re tiny, single-use gadgets,
the technology not new.
Materials are worth just pennies,
but the makers charge us thousands.
Should such rampant profiteering be allowed? No.

    Strong write Viv – like hearing ‘dwindling’ – perfect… And love the spiky directness of:
    “multi-functional wizardry
    costs peanuts: fact” very pleasing…
