DWD Never Happened In Canada... May 3rd,2013


Canadians, like the Sue Rodriguez case; have been refused point blank,
It’s the government political elusive way of being quite frank,
Never discussed, never mentioned, because we’ve all been told,
The death-with-dignity issue, is definitely illegal and far too bold.

Party loyalty is more important than assisted suicide,
Canadians are not allowed to think this through and have to abide,
Only the Ottawa establishment is allowed to decide,
And death-with-dignity is not one of the programs, they will provide

Though we have a Charter of Rights for EVERYONE in the world,
And they’re all coming here even those from the underworld,
Ottawa establishment can’t admit that there might be a mistake,
And death-with-dignity is something they will not allow or partake.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
