ONLY HALF CANADIANS VOTE... MAY 2ND,2013


ONLY HALF CANADIANS VOTE … MAY 2ND 2013
BY
JAMES BREDIN

How do we get better politicians than those we have now?
Some guys/girls who will give us death-with-dignity somehow,
Their political party doesn’t matter if they see the light,
And death-with-dignity doesn’t give them a political fright.




Why is this so difficult to get through to our politicians?
And their Supreme Court appointees who have their own conditions,
Switzerland, Oregon and Washington figured this problem out,
Some places seem to know what death-with-dignity is about.




Canadians have been told that this is of no great concern,
And we can’t go there because it’s a point of no return,
And if we don’t like the way it is, we don’t have to vote.
And without proportional representation; they have us by the throat.

poet Li Po

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
