Pauline In Quebec... Aug 28th,2013

If Pauline in Quebec can get death-with-dignity, why can’t we?
It’s obvious we need to change something as far as we can see,
But Sue Rodriguez was told by the Supreme Court; she couldn’t die,
There’s something wrong here too but no one bothered to ask why.

Ottawa politicians behave as if this issue does not exist,
Why don’t you go away and shut up and please don’t persist,
It’s as if this subject is forbidden and can’t be spoken or mentioned,
Please shut up again or you are liable to cause some tension.

Because people are reluctant to talk about the time they will die,
They’d like to delay as long as possible, that final goodbye,
Especially if it’s going to involve suffering and pain,
If DWD could be arranged though; it would be a big gain.

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
