CAN THIS BE DONE? ... SEPT 5TH,2013


They’re talking about deleting our Senate off the map,
Should it depend on how many senators are having a nap?
After all, they can stay around until they are seventy five,
But even at that old age some of them can be very much alive.




But if they could give us death-with-dignity; that would be great,
I don’t think they can do it until the Commons has it up for debate,
But they should still try because the writing is on the wall,
Could the auditor’s financial report put the place into recall?




Do we have to change the Constitution for major stuff like this?
Its not something that can be overlooked forgotten and dismissed,
And while we’re at it; death-with-dignity is due and should be passed,
Despite all the organized holy religious opposition amassed.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
