CANADIAN REFERENDUMS... MAY 27TH,2013


We cannot decide when or where or how we would like to die,
Caught in the vice grip of politicians and no one knows why,
If Oregon and Washington have DWD, why can’t we?
Caught in our own historical stupid decisions for you and me.




As Canadians, we should realize that we need to change,
Amid useless political promises that are never arranged,
Somewhere, somehow, big political changes should be made,
And assisted suicide should be part of the new crusade.




More states get it every year but not one Canadian province,
Nothing changes no matter what our politicians promise,
We need binding referendums in the Constitution soon,
Switzerland has had it for years and we should at the first opportune.
