To End Your Life - Poem by Randy McClave

Would you give a bullet to your executioner
Even though you are their petitioner,
Would you give them the authority to complete that selfless act
Well! when you voted for them, you signed that contract.

Would you hand anyone a noose to place around your neck
Would you willingly allow them to take your life and your paycheck,
Did you know that you did both? Now they slowly choke your throat
For them tell me why, did you campaign and also vote.

Would you give any person a poison to put in your drinking cup
Or would you willingly give them a bomb to blow yourself up,
Remember you allowed it all, now they don't care for your existence
When you elected those politicians and gave those hypocrites your assistance.

Would you give an elected official a sharpened hunting knife
So they could stab you in the back and then happily end your life,
Though you might be worried and nervous and also very scared
But, they are ready and willing and waiting and also quite prepared.

Would you take a gun to end your life by committing suicide
Just to protect a politicians lifestyle and their pride,
Remember you gave them the power to end your life for that reason
So, they lied and you believed them, then they committed their treason.
