Death-With-Dignity Fogm... April 28th,2013
Bureaucrats in Ottawa are forbidden to read this blog,
The death-with-dignity controversy cannot be seen through their fog,
No one in Toronto’s Queen’s Park can read it either,
And none of the other provinces have a great leader.
Politicians like to pretend that the issue doesn’t exist,
The party leader told them that this issue was dismissed,
They don’t seem to realize that they too will come face to face with death,
About the time they will be taking their eventual last breath.
The Americans have two states with assisted suicide now,
Just across the border from British Columbia somehow,
We are obviously missing something here that we can’t see,
Because of the fog so we can’t get together and agree?
