Death With Dignity - Poem by James Bredin

People are concerned about when and where and how they will die,
Unfortunately they can’t do anything and if asked, they’ll deny,
They are also forbidden binding referendums so that’s it,
Media moguls and politicians think this subject is unfit.

Maybe you are one of the few folk who think you will never die,
Death with dignity is illegal and you always comply,
Therefore nothing will change and assisted suicide is out,
But you will eventually die and of this there is no doubt.

Canadians should have death-with-dignity on a national level,
Maybe the provincial level or would that really dishevel?
It seems the Americans are doing it, one state at a time,
The issue is too big but Canadians should get in line.
