Can We Influence Our Appoınted Senate...


How do we influence the Canadian Senate appointees?
They are not elected so live an aristocrat life of ease,
So isolated, they may not have heard of death-with-dignity,
Should we write them, phone them, e-mail them or just watch them on TV?


As members of the appointed Ottawa elite; they are high up,
You don’t get normal contact with these aristocrats closeup,
You have to show respect because of their honorary titles,
And realize that they have lots of bureaucratic disciples.


How do we tell these elites about death-with-dignity now?
They may not listen because they are holier than thou,
Is there somewhere you can complain about this attitude?
And their complete lack of thankfulness and gratitude.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
