The Most Important Date In My Life Aug 16th,2012 - Poem by James Bredin

The most important date in my life is the date I will die,
The Supreme Court won't let me change that date and I don't know why,
Is it some religious belief that they want us to obey?
No matter what the disease or pain; we have to suffer and stay.

Sooner or later, you too will have to cope with this question,
There's nothing legal you can do so don't bother with the suggestion,
The Supreme Court laid down the law so you have to suffer the pain,
It doesn't matter whether it's freezing cold, sunshine or rain.

Should I go to Switzerland and get fixed up over there?
I hear they help many people who are approaching death and despair,
I read there may be certain pills for sale in Mexico down there,
I think of poor Sue Rodriguez and maybe say a prayer.
