Canadian Euthanasia July 6th,2012


Someone should devise a simple way for Canadians to die,
Then make euthanasia legal by referendum and no lie,
So that when we need to die, we can arrange for the when and where,
I can see it all now as those pompous patrons in Ottawa glare.

The Supreme Court guys and girls in Ottawa looking down,
So you better behave yourself because they don't fool around,
Abortions allowed but euthanasia banned long ago,
Sue Rodriguez had to, and you too, may have to, kowtow.

Maybe not though if we could change some laws and constitution,
We could have death with dignity and no more confusion,
But where do we find a leader or politician who is willing?
Because our lack of this kind of leadership is very chilling.

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
