What They Talk About... Jan 18th,2013 - Poem by James Bredin


They will talk about what they want to talk about and that's not you,
They are locked in their party agenda but who knew?
That means no death-with-dignity and no referendums,
And occasionally they check their party memorandums.

And what can we do to be worthy of their attention?
Because death without dignity is part of our apprehension,
But not them; so perhaps they think that they will never die,
They don't seem to think that this is serious stuff and I don't know why.

I'm not sure what we should do to get their assistance,
To let them know that we are alive and in existence,
They seem to have taken over and left us out in the cold,
Their agenda is stuck, so we better shut up and do what we're told.
