Rookie (1933 / Ennis Canada)

Why Why Why...

The Americans added the State of Vermont yesterday,
No need to look forward to a painful doomsday death there,
They also have the State of Oregon and Washington on side,
Unfortunately Canadians don’t have one province with this pride.

Because death-with-dignity has been completely banned,
Not one province is allowed to have it, in this great land,
Like they told Sue Rodriguez many years ago,
Suffering from painful Lou Gehrig’s disease and she had to go.

feel that we will eventually get it but what a painful trip!
As Canadians are held in a fierce tight judicial grip,
And our aristocrats in Ottawa will not answer the cause,
These appointees are busy doing nothing just because.
