Death With Dignity Very Please Oct 11th,2012


The death with dignity issue is an example of no fuss,
And how isolated our Ottawa politicians are from us,
They just wont touch the subject though people are dying all around,
It must be their political agenda and they win hands down.

But it would be nice to arrange this whole dying affair,
Have death with dignity, even though some don't seem to care,
Maybe they think that they themselves will never never die,
Because they are aristocrats in Ottawa, somewhere up high.

I'm going to die but I don't know when, where, how or why,
And someday you are too, so we better now say goodbye,
And hope we don't get the Sue Rodriguez treatment before we go,
And nothing has changed though that was many many years ago.
