Assisted Suicide

Why is death with dignity seldom mentioned in our land?

In Oregon, Washington and Switzerland; it’s already there,
So Canadian media or politicians should not scare.

Why is this one human right denied with all government might?
Though they have abortion clinics killing babies day and night,
And a federal or provincial election almost every year,
The subject of death with dignity is avoided with great fear.

Back lanes of half-door houses waiting someone to arrive.
Narrow winding streets full of friends and farmers’ horses,
Pompous priests dressed in black who always walked on water,
