Appointees... Sept 2nd,2013 - Poem by James Bredin

Could our appointed Senate pass a law about death-with-dignity?
Why do all those who even try to answer; do it differently,
Could the Red Chamber, save the day or will they be deleted?
Or do those who know the real answer, keep it a secret?

Does democracy count here as they wait till they are seventy five?
Could the upcoming audit scandals cause them to take a nose dive?
Has anyone ever mentioned death-with-dignity up there?
Could this be their democratic chance to survive in those chairs?

If we/they can’t debate this issue; could we get them to change?
Could they just legalize assisted suicide and then arrange?
Am I doing something wrong by asking all these questions?
Maybe you, whoever you are, can come up with more suggestions.
