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.
