Sonnet: Euthanasia - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Euthanasia or mercy-killing,
Of human beings greatly suffering;
The doctor helping them to die their way,
In a pleasant style, on their chosen day.

O Healer and scholar of medicine!
Is it ethical to do this great sin?
Extend thou the lives of diseased patients;
But in cutting life’s strand, where’s thy defense?

Maybe, ’tis a service you do to him!
Who yearns to die than suffer a life grim;
But to use thy skills to abet a man’s death!
Doth God allow thee to take his last breath?

O doctor of today! You think well twice;
Is Euthanasia a thing nice?
