DWD ONE WAY OR THE OTHER... AUG 22ND,2013


DWD has caused only silence from our prime minister,
For such an important subject; I find this a little sinister,
As if this is not important so please just go away,
Sorry prime minister but death-with-dignity is here to stay.




Should we show more respect to the prime minister’s appointees?
The same aristocrats who gave us Mulroney’s GST,
Are senators too high on the social ladder to be charged?
But their honourable legal titles and egos are quite large.




They say that Pauline in Quebec will have death-with-dignity soon,
That’s ironic and without a referendum on any afternoon,
Could we go to Quebec, and get it, if they get it before us?
Please tell Pauline to write us in, and don’t cause a legal fuss,

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;

Before we grow old and die.
