YOUR EVENTUAL DEATH


This is a subject we like to avoid because it’s about death,
Eventually, sooner or later, you will run out of your breath,
So you better pay attention because you too will die,
It helps that most of us don’t know, not yet, the reason why.

And euthanasia and death with dignity are all banned,
All very illegal and very difficult to understand,
But god forbid you are in pain as you wait in torment to die,
The Swiss and Dutch have euthanasia but for you it’s good bye.

So why can’t they change things about so we can have an easy way out?
Where we can get legal euthanasia and know what it’s about,
The right to assisted suicide was not mentioned in the Charter,
So you may have to wait in pain and truly be a martyr.

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
