ISOLATED OTTAWA ARISTOCRATS ... DEC 26TH,2012 Poem by James Bredin


Isolated arrogant aristocrats are well connected,
They are not going anywhere soon because they're well protected,
And death-with-dignity is not on any of their programs up front,
No binding referendums or plebiscites, so you can just grunt.

You and I and all of us in photographs will soon be long gone,
We can't plan for our untimely deaths because it's wrong,
But the Swiss and those in Oregon are allowed to do this,
But not Canadians and the aristocrats don't give a piss.

I know; I know; it's probably a sin to plan your death,
But why suffer for years in pain, waiting for your last breath?
Poor Sue Rodriguez tried it and was point-blank refused,
It is very obvious that she was extremely abused.
