LACK OF COMMUNICATIONS... APRIL 25TH,2013


Why are our elites so opposed to assisted suicide?
No one knows why and they will not say why or confide,
It doesn’t seem right to those who are sick with cancer and want to die,
Could be dying in great cancer pain and no one can comply.




And without binding referendums we can’t bring it to their attention,
They are party members and don’t want to cause any dissention,
We don’t have proportional representation in our first-past-the-post,
If they win a bent election, they can all stand up and boast.




And members of the Senate don’t even have to get elected,
Appointees till they are seventy five so we are not protected,
So those who are on death’s door may suffer in their pain,
No DWD for them and there’s little they can gain.

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
