Death without dignity... Oct 6th,2013


Death without dignity could be death with lots of pain,
But those who died in pain are no longer around and can’t complain,
Canadian politicians and Ottawa elites will not discuss,
They don’t want Canadians to think or ever cause a fuss.


We should be able to discuss our deaths before we disappear,
And suicide assistance should not be an offence to fear,
Those who feel it’s time to die should be allowed to do so,
But officials are worried that someone might think it’s a game show.


Because the elites in Ottawa are much holier than thou,
We can’t even think about this matter unless they allow,
Binding referendums and euthanasia are completely banned,
Like political recall too and it’s all at their command.

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
