THERE'S NO WAY OUT NOV 7TH,2012

BY

JAMES BREDIN

The death-with-dignity crowd is trying to help you out,

Because you don't have much of a clue what death is all about,

But biased aristocrats don't want anything to change,

No need to think about this because they will arrange.









If, God-forbid, you come down with Lou Gehrig's disease,

Like Sue Rodriguez; whom the establishment did not please,

The death-with-dignity crowd suggestions might help you out,

Though this is still illegal in Canada; what this is all about.





Because, there's a chance that you might have a miserable death,
We are here now and it looks like we can't get out of this mess,

Because the Supreme Court is not likely to change their rules,

And we must be considered compliant obedient fools.
