IS SELECT SUICIDE A SCANDAL... OCT 21ST,2013


Has the Vatican pedophile scandal vanished and gone away?
Is our present Senate scandal here forever to stay?
Is death-with-dignity completely illegal and banned?
Would another Red Chamber throne speech be politically grand?


What happens if Quebec gets death-with-dignity and we don’t?
Could we here in Ontario then claim that we were disowned?
Could the Ottawa aristocrats prorogue parliament once more?
Could compulsory voting become an issue and why do they deplore?


So here we are watching rush-hour traffic on TV and think we’re great,
While death-with-dignity is denied and never comes up for debate,
We may go to Switzerland to die but not to Quebec,
Because that’s in their DWD law that we didn’t write or select.

Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
