Death With Dignity Now Oct 1st 2012
The big problem that humans have, is our approaching death,
And the appointed High Court wont allow DWD just yet,
We are stuck with the problem of how to bring about change,
Our politicians are too busy to stop what they are doing and arrange.
There is dignity in dying if it is properly planned,
But DWD is prohibited as the High Court has banned,
And our big problem is that we are all going to die,
And there is nothing we can do about it and I don't know why.
If the Americans can have DWD in some states,
Could we have it by province or is that too much to debate?
After all, we have abortions everywhere, wall to wall,
Therefore DWD should not be illegal - not at all.
