Pauline - Poem by James Bredin

Is it possible Ontario could get assisted suicide?
After Quebec gets Bill 52 and we go along for the ride,
And Pauline Marois shows us the provincial health way,
And we’re so surprised, we don’t know what to say.

The first death-with-dignity Canadian should be made a saint,
Though I know this idea may cause some pious folk to faint,
And the Sue Rodriguez decision was probably wrong,
Contrary to the new Quebec Provincial Health Plan and we go along.

And now that you can read these poems, you have come a long way,
Media moguls once ruled the roost but now we have our say,
And if we reach a painful terrible place, we can then just go and die,
Someone should go and thank Pauline and we all know the reason why.
