THE PAIN OF DEATH... MAY 29TH,20`3


Death itself is bad enough but the pain that goes with it, can be worse,
Therefore death-without-dignity can be a painful awful curse,
Of course you don’t know because it will never happen to you,
But it would be nice though to go out in style and wave adieu.




Unfortunately our politicians avoid this issue like the plague,
And if you ask; if you get an answer; it will be very vague,
The States of Oregon, Washington and Vermont have it now,
Maybe the people in those states are holier than thou.




Unfortunately we are having a Senate scandal now,
The idea of death-with-dignity might cause a row,
And the Supreme Court told Sue Rodriguez where to go
While she, dying with painful Lou Gehrig’s disease not long ago
