Your Eventual Death... Sep 29th,2013 - Poem by James Bredin
There is nothing we can do about our upcoming deaths,
And eventually there will come a time when we will take our last breaths,
But they will not allow us assisted suicide in any way,
There is no easy way around this and it is not okay.
Our Supreme Court told sorrowful Sue Rodriguez when she asked
She had Lou Gehrig’s disease and the was dying painful and fast
They ruled that death-with-dignity was not allowed in any way,
And all appointed Supreme Court rules had to be obeyed.
So Canadians are stuck between a rock and a hard place,
Though a painful Lou Gehrig’s death could be a painful disgrace,
The opposition to this subject is difficult to believe,
So much for democracy and I don’t know what they want to achieve.
