DYING WITH DIGNITY... APR 6TH,2013


Dying with dignity is about living life on our own terms,
When and if we get our euthanasia; this will be confirmed,
We should not need to go to court for permission to die,
To have some high court judge refuse while looking us in the eye.




Persons with painful or cancerous diseases should have permission,
For euthanasia after consultation with their physician,
This should be a constitutional right and no need to implore,
Or told by some high court judge to get out the door.




Our do-nothing politicians are not interested in this cause,
They know about the Sue Rodriguez decision that caused these laws,
If we had euthanasia; we could die without horrible pain,
Instead of counting spots on the ceiling while listening to the rain.
