Rookie (1933 / Ennis Canada)





Death-with-dignity is more important than Trudeau's Constitution,
It could ease the problems involved in death and be the solution,
But pompous politicians and religious nuts all frown on this,
One of the few and first people to figure it out, were the Swiss.

There has to be more to this than meets the eye in their control grid,
As our politicians and appointees hidden in Ottawa all forbid,
Where binding referendums are forbidden and can't be spoken,
And Sue Rodriguez was an example and just another token.

If you mention this in Ottawa, you could be scorned,
And now that you have read this poem; you have been warned,
It's as though we are all into some secret religious cult,
We don't need a lawyer, instructions and no need to consult.
