Old People Dying... May 1st,2013

Old people thinking of dying don’t normally make a fuss,
Many of them standing by the roadside just waiting for a bus,
Busy Politicians don’t see them as they quickly drive by,
But those with a terminal illness should be allowed a suicide.

Justin’s team could be a shoo in, if he has the guts,
If he would back assisted suicide; no ifs ands or buts,
Unfortunately he is part of the establishment so no way,
Euthanasia is also banned by them by night and by day.

And it doesn’t matter who or what you say or do; they will not change,
You may have to go to Switzerland for your death to be arranged,
Why can’t we change things to help each other with assisted suicide?
Why must the issue of death-with-dignity have to collide?
