MAKE A DONATION NOW... SEPT 10TH,2013


Some of the great people I worked with long ago, are now dead,
We are all going that way, as I try to remember what they said,
And we have no control of when, where or why we will die,
And it’s not considered important so no need to ask why.




How do we get our politicians to pay attention to this cause?
We would like to die quietly, painless in peace just because,
This of course is thinking outside the dominant religious square,
While some preacher down at the church wants everyone to kneel and pray.




All religious hierarchy types oppose death-with-dignity solution,
They call it a sin or sacrilege and forbid all collusion,
People should concentrate on their religion and not on their deaths,
And make large donations for the right reasons - you can bet.

Oft I had heard of Lucy Gray:
And, when I crossed the wild,
I chanced to see at break of day
The solitary child.

No mate, no comrade Lucy knew;
