DWD AND THE ESTABLISHMENT... MAR 22ND,2013


DWD AND THE ESTABLISHMENT MAR 22ND,2013
BY
JAMES BREDIN


The isolated Ottawa establishment couldn't care less,
About you down there and your death-with-dignity request,
Because death-with-dignity is not on their agenda,
You are a nobody so listen to their propaganda.




They oppose any and all radical political change,
Therefore death-with-dignity will never be arranged,
And without binding referendums; there's nothing we can do,
We are completely helpless as we all wait to die on cue.




This is serious life-and-death stuff so we should take care,
Death will eventually happen to you so we have to beware,
But various religions decided suicide was a sin,
It's no great reason why we the people should never win.
