Canadian Death With Dignity

Media moguls have been directed what and when and where to write,
By appointed Ottawa elites, who are convinced that they are right,
And death-with-dignity will stay completely blacked out and banned,
But the Swiss and those in Oregon can have it all planned.

I would like to avoid my death for as long as I can,
And then die with dignity but that's under a Supreme-Court ban,
Our isolated appointed elites, laid down the law,
When they told Sue Rodriguez that such a death; was a flaw.

Supreme Court judges could give high-up type a very bad name,
Because the edicts from above and the dictates are the same,
And you may die in pain because dignity in death is banned,
Unless you plan to go to Switzerland and have it all planned.

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
