Rookie (1933 / Ennis Canada)


James Bredin

Those people who reach a hundred will be dead soon enough,
It's not their death; it's how it happens, that can be pretty rough,
So we need death-with-dignity, which the elites trend to avoid,
Banned by the church and the courts and we have no political guide.

And our pompous media moguls will not point the proper way,
They are bought by the politically correct in what they say,
Though no one has yet figured out a way to avoid his or her death,
And the Ottawa elites will not even let us think or plan it yet.

They told poor Sue Rodriguez that she could die when she tried,
Did these judges themselves, think that they would never die?
If Switzerland and Oregon and Washington have it; why not us?
Why are we so backward and why can't we cause a political fuss?
