DWD COMING YOUR WAY … JUNE 19TH,2013
by
James Bredin

If Quebec gets death-with-dignity and other provinces don’t,
Will this finally bring the life-and-death issue to the forefront?
Where politicians and appointees refused to change and still refuse,
They have a lot of entitlements and may be away on a cruise.


But our death-with-dignity is not only banned, it’s illegal,
Since the Supreme Court Sue Rodriguez decision went legal,
So there’s a constitutional problem looming in our future,
Complicated legal stuff and you may need a computer.

Half of Europe and four US states have assisted suicide now,
But for some reason our elite hierarchy still refuse to allow,
Add that to our appointed Senate scandal where nothing can change,
Is it pride or religions or stupidness that says we can’t rearrange?

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
