IMPOSED EDICTS ON OUR POLITICIANS.. APRIL 23RD 2013


I can write about death-with-dignity till I’m blue in the face,
And not one politician will step forward to help in our case,
They have been told by some party leader to avoid this stuff,
Why do appointees and establishment think it’s pretty rough?


The Americans have death-with-dignity in two states,
Canadians can’t even bring it up for provincial debate,
Politicians don’t want to rock the boat because they’ve been told,
Could get kicked out of their party so they can’t be that bold.


I’m not sure why the opposition to death-with-dignity is so fierce,
Is it the various religions that organize such force?
Why should they object so strongly to those who want to die?
As they impose edicts on politicians and I don’t know why.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
