Rookie (1933 / Ennis Canada)



Our politicians are very busy going here and going there,
To meetings and giving the illusion that they really care,
But no medically assisted death so we could die in pain,
Did the Supreme Court treat Sue Rodriguez with disdain?

But we have Pierre Trudeau’s Charter so we must be all right,
And all those appointed senators are an elegant sight,
Seated in a huge red room till they are each seventy five,
It’s possible that by then, you or I may not be alive.

And those appointees can’t have medically assisted death,
They too could die in pain but this is something they’ve been told to forget?
Then add the Senate scandals and try to figure it all out,
And why is it that these appointed elites never have a doubt?

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
