No Death-With-Dignity For You... Mar 28th,2013 - Poem by James Bredin

James Bredin

The Ottawa aristocrats like things the way they are,
Don’t you dare have an independent thought because that’s going too far,
And what they said to Sue Rodriguez, you better keep in mind,
You may be there yourself some day and it will not be fine.

That means no death-with-dignity for you or me or him or her,
It doesn’t matter when or where or how your death may occur,
This is deadly serious stuff, which they will not even discuss,
And we are merely numbers who can’t even kick up a fuss.

The Liberals may be coming out of the woods with Justin up front,
But they’re no different than what we have, to put it quite blunt,
Because they don’t want to discuss death-with-dignity either,
Maybe I should stop writing about this and take a breather.
