Every Canadian Hospital... May 25th,2013 - Poem by James Bredin
Every hospital should have a room where sick people can go to die,
And get doctor assisted-suicide with family and say goodbye,
This notion is forbidden by every religion known,
Though they preach high and mighty from a pulpit; they never condone.
And why is death-with-dignity such a struggle in our times?
Is it our religious fanatics want it listed as a crime?
We are all going to die, whether we like it or not,
Sorry to have to tell you; but this is food for thought.
It is only a matter of time before you are on your death bed,
This very idea is what most people avoid and dread,
It’s a complicated affair where the mere mention is shunned,
Politicians always prefer to have this notion adjourned.
