James Bredin Poems
Death With Dignity Please
If I die and I will and I don't know where or when or why,
And I can't do anything about it as I wait to say goodbye,
But it would be nice to arrange the whole dying affair,
Have death with dignity, even though religious groups don't dare.
I suppose I'm lucky, not to know when, where or why I'll die,
And you are too so maybe we should get ready to say goodbye,
You and I and us in the photographs will soon be long gone,
We can't plan for our untimely deaths because they say, it's wrong.
But the Swiss and those in Oregon have death with dignity,
The Liberals are so accustomed to power they just wait,
They feel sure that eventually there will be an election date,
And when they get back in, they’ll do just like they did before,
Absolutely nothing until they are again kicked out the door.
Therefore we need a law to impose set election dates,
But there is no way this will be discussed or come up for debate,
Because all our elected politicians want nothing to change,
They want to stay in Ottawa for ever and why should that be
