Death -With-Dignity Forbidden

Four American States already have death-with-dignity now,
We will get it eventually after more political rows,
Because those who oppose it, have great religious zeal,
Until they approach death in sickness and pain and realize what’s real.

Our politicians and appointees avoid this issue like the plague,
They pretend they can’t remember and the whole issue is vague,
They have other issues to discuss and senators being suspended,
And an election is years away which is in itself, splendid.

The issue of death-with-dignity is not important to them,
Their political party said, stay away or they’ll be condemned,
Maybe they think that they themselves will never die,
Just stick to the party line and never never ask why.
