NO DIGNITY IN OUR DEATHS... DEC 17TH,2013


NO DIGNITY IN OUR DEATHS … DEC 17TH,2013
BY
JAMES BREDIN

There is a date sometime in the future when I will die,
You too and it can’t be arranged and neither you nor I know why,
But as we get older, we get closer to that important date,
No dignity arranged as politicians and Supreme Court say wait.


All organized religions are opposed to this death notion,
But four US states have it and so does Switzerland across the ocean,
All this may not seem important to you, if you are young and able,
Your politician doesn’t want to listen so send him/her a cable.


Who was it that thought up the idea of life after death?
It just doesn't make sense after you have taken your last breath,
Has anyone come back from the dead to talk about this?
Better to have death with dignity because there is no abyss.
