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 Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
