DEATH WITH DIGNITY REGARDLESS... APRIL 26TH,2013


They tell the near-dead to live on regardless of the pain,
And we should pay attention though Ottawa seems to be insane,
With their combination of hypocrisy and autocracy,
Because Ottawa rules with their aristocracy and bureaucracy.




It should be written in the Charter, big and strong and bold,
That Canadians have a right to die though Ottawa wants to withhold,
Though those close to death may need help to get the job over and done,
And their assisted suicide; chosen to be their final end run.




Of course priests and bishops and cardinals are completely opposed,
And their reasons are like the pedophile stuff – never disclosed,
As Canadians, we should be able to demand these changes,
Whether it’s federal or provincial – so long as someone arranges.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
