DWD... APRIL 14TH,2013


What have the pompous politicians got against death-with-dignity?
Do they think that they themselves will never have to suffer this indignity?
Or do they believe that their own deaths can always be postponed?
And that those looking for death-with-dignity are probably stoned?




Therefore the whole DWD issue can be just swept under the mat,
No reason for a politician to get worked up or go to bat,
And referendums were not listed in Trudeau’s Charter,
They consider this issue being close to being a political martyr.




And no one in Ottawa has even heard or read about this,
And what’s the big fuss about; being treated like the Swiss?
Canadians should show more respect for the Ottawa elites,
They should just pay their taxes, shut up and not ask for receipts.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
