James Bredin

Rookie (1933 / Ennis Canada)


Our politicians are getting worked up about this election,
Each party, left or right, has their own agenda selection,
But no binding referendums or death with dignity here,
You see these are forbidden, silent issues that each party fears.

When the time comes to die and it will for both you and me,
Sometime in our futures and it’s not all that difficult to foresee,
The clock is ticking and eventually we will, all be dead,
Our politicians don’t notice this and still think they’re ahead.

For some strange reason, death with dignity is totally banned,
The appointed Supreme Court refused Sue Rodriquez’s demand,
No wonder so many Canadians refuse to even vote,
Where the abortion clinics are busy with death that they promote.
