MY DEATH... FEB 27TH,2013


MY DEATH … Feb 27th,2013
By
James Bredin

I would like to delay my death for 25 years or more,
And then arrange it all before I finally go out the door,
But death-with-dignity is illegal in Canada now,
As those who told Sue Rodriguez as if they were holier than thou.




I think twenty forty two would be a good year to die,
I'll be a hundred and five by then so they'll be no need to cry,
Just take some pills and lie down and quietly peacefully die,
Though those opposed might cause a fuss and I don't know why.




Unfortunately our Ottawa elites seem to be in hiding now,
And they expect to be treated like a sacred cow,
So I hope they change their ways by twenty forty two,
And if I'm still alive; I'll wave to them from the DWD queue.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
