Assisted Suicide Ride... Aug 9th,2013 - Poem by James Bredin

Why are government officials so opposed to assisted suicide?
Have they been told by some activist to shut up and get on side?
Or does some holy religious law dominate the place?
And therefore those pompous holy rules pushed right in our face.

I’m not sure which is worse; men with long hair or women with tattoos,
Add that to dead alcoholics who couldn’t quit the booze,
Then add death-with-dignity pompously denied to one and all,
And life-long Ottawa appointed senators having a ball.

But now and then we catch a glimps of how things could be done,
But religious types may not agree and claim it’s too much fun,
I’m sorry and should appologize for having these awful thoughts,
No death-with-dignity from those high up, who act like despots.
