Equal In Death May 17th,2011 - Poem by James Bredin
We are very equal in the fact that we are all going to die,
But we can’t have death with dignity though and I don’t know why,
The enemy is ourselves because we are completely restricted,
Tell the injection-site types that we are not all drug addicted.
No plebiscites or binding referendums to get it right,
Little access to information so no constitutional fights,
And those with hidden agendas gave us abortion clinics,
Holocaust of unborn babies on your street and please, no cynics.
No propositions and no one heard of judicial review,
Keep listening because the next change comes in the evening news,
No proportional representation in first past the post,
But our politicians can stand in parliament and boast.
