No Death With Dignity For You - Poem by James Bredin

If someone out there can prove that there is a god, please let me know,
Difficult to believe though I hear the constant religious talk shows,
We are only allowed to live for x number of years and then we die,
And we can’t arrange this with dignity, the when, where and why.

Four American states already have death-with-dignity now,
But still our pompous Supreme Court and Ottawa will not allow,
And without binding referendums we can’t penetrate this,
Some countries already have it in their constitution like the Swiss.

How long will we have to wait before DWD arrives?
Will any of our present generation be still alive?
We don’t have to vote and less than half of us even bother to do,
Without leadership or referendums, we can’t break through.
