Dwd Never Happened In Canada... May 4th,2013 - Poem by James Bredin

Canadians, like the Sue Rodriguez case; have been refused point blank,
It’s the political elusive way; though they pretend to be quite frank,
Never discussed, never mentioned, because they’ve all been told,
The death-with-dignity issue, is probably sinful and far too bold.




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




Add to that the fact that only half the Canadians vote,
And party politicians love it though they should feel remote,
The political party – not the people – is what it’s all about,
So it’s not what the people want – it’s who has the clout.
