APPLICATION TO DIE July 21st,2012
BY
JAMES BREDIN

Dying with dignity is about living life on our own terms,
When and if we get our euthanasia this will be confirmed,
We should not need to go to court to get permission to die,
To have some high court judge refuse while looking you in the eye.




Persons with painful diseases should have automatic permission,
For euthanasia after consultation with their physician,
This should be a constitutional right and no need to implore,
And told by some appointed judge to get to hell out the door.




Our do-nothing politicians are always waiting for advice,
From their party leadership which is always very precise,
They cannot make an independent decision because they've been told,
No death with dignity or referendums and don't be so bold.

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
