Doomed Democracy... Mar 18th,2014 - Poem by James Bredin

Why is medically-assisted death so difficult to achieve?
Canadian Supreme Court and politicians refuse to believe,
That the time has come and we need a big change and its now,
But they’re busy going to meetings and they just will not allow.

No binding referendums or recalls are ever allowed,
You can’t change things or vote for a senator or feel proud.
Our upper echelon politicians are afraid to decide on this,
Because when party politicians meet they just reminisce.

Democracy should allow us to influence our politicians,
We should not have to live in no-death-with-dignity conditions,
While appointed senators can stay till they are seventy five,
When you and I may be long dead and not even alive.
