STEPHEN ASSISTED-SUICIDE … Jan 19th,2013
Stephen Harper; these are subjects that you wont even touch,
And many Canadians feel that they have been left in the lurch,
Assisted suicide could help us when it comes time to die,
A nice quiet peaceful exit for those about to say goodbye.
I know this poem will go the same way the others have gone before,
Past useless opposition NDP and Liberals outside the door,
Sometimes I feel as though I'm shouting into an Ottawa wind,
And no one in Ottawa is interested; right to the bitter end.
We need binding referendums to get assisted suicide,
But political agendas and these ideas tend to collide,
Or is it because the church considers this a mortal sin?
Something is wrong; we need to change but where do we begin?
