Treasure Island

Millions of cancer patients suffer needlessly from their pain,
It could be anywhere in their body, from their toes to their brain,
It's an ongoing global thing, finalized by a painful death,
Death with dignity could solve this for those on their last breath.

Euthanasia doesn't get the spotlight because it's hidden,
Indeed in Canada it's completely banned and forbidden,
But this is what our Supreme Court imposed on us to do,
They did it to Sue Rodriguez and therefore they did it to you.

I'd like to avoid the slow death of dying in agony and pain,
Looking at spots in the ceiling and listening to the rain,
And without propositions or referendums, we're out of luck,
They refuse to change the Constitution, so we're really stuck.

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
