IDEAS DIFFICULT TO DEFEND… Nov 14th,2013
BY
JAMES BREDIN

Our now hand-picked Supreme Court judges should be elected,
Their abortion decisions caused baby-killing machines protected,
Our senators too should be elected in a democratic way,
And compulsory voting would protect us and let be what we may.


We need binding referendums and death with dignity too,
What they did to Sue Rodriguez was extremely cruel but who knew?
Switzerland has death with dignity and Oregon and Washington too,
Various religious hypocrites do not agree and will not let these laws through.


I would like to eventually be able to schedule my own death,
But, thank god, I don’t know when, where, why or how yet,
And we have a Constitution that’s nearly impossible to amend,
Therefore, these ideas of mine are extremely difficult to defend.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
