Appointed Commission - Poem by James Bredin

Dying-with-dignity might be a media-forbidden fact,
The aristocrats believe that this fact could infect,
And cause Canadians to demand some legal change,
But if they don't read about it; there will be no need to rearrange.

And besides; it's probably against every religion,
Especially those well organized about sin; those Christians,
So the opposition is strong and educated and very aware,
Though that death-with-dignity issue becomes louder every year.

Several European countries already have euthanasia,
It tends to be looked at these days; as a musical fantasia,
So there's no doubt that it's coming our way despite the opposition,
Politicians might stop it with another appointed commission.
