What Would Justin Do? ... Jan 27th,2013 - Poem by James Bredin


We are expected to be docile and quiet but still cope,
And if our politicians are in hiding; we can only hope,
That they will deal with assisted suicide sometime soon,
But that may be as distant as the next blue moon.

Because they don't want to touch this issue with a ten-foot pole,
And above all else, they pretend that they are still in full control,
If Justin Trudeau and his Liberals were there; what would they do?
But the Liberals were there for years and forced to say adieu.

And death-with-dignity will be washed away with the other stuff,
Mandatory votes, proportional representation - is that enough?
This is supposed to be democracy, not an adventure,
Without death-with-dignity; this will be a risky venture.
