James Bredin

Rookie (1933 / Ennis Canada)


James Bredin

Two American states already have death-with-dignity now,
But no miserable little province in Canada is allowed,
But eventually we will all have it and I hope I'm still alive,
But why is it such a struggle now, long before it arrives?

Maybe you think you won't need it and you will live forever,
But why are you so stupid though you think you are quite clever?
Why does Ottawa have a religion where appointees are sacred?
Sitting in the appointed Senate where their needs are catered?

We can't get rid of our present system that caters to appointees;
Ottawa is full of them like religious nuts on their knees,
These isolated aristocrats have their own private agenda,
Remember Sue Rodriguez and now listen to their propaganda.
