Idle Chatter About Your Death Aug 20th,2012 - Poem by James Bredin


Why can't we have death-with-dignity installed?
Why are so many Ottawa activists so appalled?
Several US states and European countries have it now,
Could we tell the Supreme Court that we want to be allowed?

Even pompous High Court judges will eventually face death,
Even they too, each one of them, will eventually run out of breath,
Why have they imposed their views; so Canada is no longer grand?
Is it religion or some other ideology or just follow the band?

Why is it so strange to change and relieve the terrible pain of death?
But Death with Dignity could help before we run out of breath,
Sue Rodriguez found out the hard way about this vital matter,
Extreme Lou Gehrig's pain does not allow for idle chatter.
