James Bredin

Rookie (1933 / Ennis Canada)


Death-with-dignity could be considered a religious divorce,
Could be considered a major spiritual change of course,
Because pompous preachers on pulpits wave their arms and don’t agree,
It’s considered a deadly mortal sin so get down on your knees.

But maybe, just maybe, you don’t agree with priestly dictates,
Because; no changes allowed and absolutely no debates,
So you better obey and do exactly as you have been told,
You could be excommunicated and left out in the cold.

They have DWD in Switzerland and at least four US states,
Our federal politicians will not even allow debates,
There is a major political religious problem here,
Words not said or sinful suggestions made out of fear.

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
