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 Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
