WHERE DO WE STAND?    … MAR 27TH, 2015
BY
JAMES BREDIN

The High Court gave them a year to change the Death-With-Dignity law,
But they seem to look at this issue as a complete flaw,
They're too busy at the moment and may not have the time,
Their war in Syria will cost us a lot more than a dime.

So go back to sleep and forget this Death-With-Dignity stuff,
There may be or may not be, an election and isn't that enough?
Though half of Europe and five US states have it now,
Preachers say its suicide and a sin so it cannot be allowed.

This whole issue should have died or gone to sleep by now,
Instead, it stays around and might be inclined to cause a row,
Why can five US states have it now and we can't?
Should it be federal or provincial; any anti death-with-dignity rant?

WELCOME ABOARD ... MAR 23RD, 2015

WELCOME ABOARD    MAR 23RD, 2015
BY
JAMES BREDIN

I've known old folks who were not pleased, just waiting around to die,
And they didn't know how, or when, or where, though some knew why,
If we had had death-with-dignity; the whole affair could have been arranged,
But the preachers said that this was a sin and could not be prearranged.

Though when, where and why I will die, is a great concern to me,
Because I am already very old and its easier to discern and to see,
Though doctor assisted death is completely banned and forbidden,
A doctor could do fourteen years for making this decision.

I can't understand this strict political attitude,
Though the religious pulpit types, do show their gratitude,
And our politicians seem to hide from this decision,
They're busy at a meeting -- called administrative division.

MAYBE WE WONT DIE  …. MAR 21ST, 2015
BY
JAMES BREDIN

Politicians running around in circles can show that they are strong,

But our lack of death-with-dignity is a sign that there's something wrong,

And doctor assisted death cannot even be mentioned,

And because nothing is said; nobody pays much attention.



Because death with dignity is also against Canadian law,

That plus the upper echelon think that this is great, so see no flaw,

Half the European countries already have it and five US states,

But we don't seem to be allowed to even have one of these debates.



It's as though we will never die so there is no need to worry or care,

And those of us who are even slightly religious, can say a prayer,

Because suicide is declared a mortal sin so we could go to hell,

Apparently its a very hot place in which to dwell.

THINGS ARE A LITTLE STRANGE    15 MAR 2015
BY
JAMES BREDIN
Too many of the great guys I knew and worked with, are now long dead,
But the memories are still there, dancing and prancing inside my head,
And it's only a matter of time and we'll all be dead like them,
But we don't have death-with-dignity, so we don't know where or when.

And as of now; we can't change the rules about life and death,
And we can't have death-with-dignity when we take our last breath,
Though the Supreme Court told them to change the rules within a year,
Maybe they think that they will live forever without fear.

I'm sorry to have to tell you this, but you too will eventually die,
And as of now, you don't know when where or why,
And our politicians want nothing to change,
Is it possible that you might think that this is a little strange

FORGET DEATH ... MAR 13TH, 2015

FORGET DEATH   … MAR 13TH, 2015
BY
JAMES BREDIN

Our Ottawa MPs seem to think that they got it right,
And the idea of changing the law, gives them a fright,
Though the Supreme Court gave them a year to do just that,
And for death-with-dignity, they will not go to bat.

Why do so many countries have death-with-dignity and we're not allowed?
Some sad souls go to Switzerland to meet the death-with-dignity crowd,
Our Ottawa MPs seem to think that we will never die,
Therefore we don't need death-with-dignity; that's why.

They want everything to stay the same and you, please behave,
Though there are folk in hospital dying in pain trying to be brave,
This is what the preachers want because suicide is a sin,
Therefore we the people are not allowed to win.

The secret of your life is the time and date of your death,
And without death-with-dignity, this is all the knowledge you will get,
Because all political party programmes want to forget death and deny,
Therefore there is no reason to announce the reason why.

BECAUSE THEY WERE ELECTED …MAR 6TH, 2015
BY
JAMES BREDIN 

As we get older and even older and closer to our deaths,

This is something our politicians would like us to forget,
The Supreme Court gave them a year to change our laws,
But they say they're too busy and can't do it just because.

So preachers on TV and on pulpits often call suicide a sin,
Therefore we could all go to hell and there is no way we can win,
And doctor assisted death should be avoided at all costs,
It doesn't matter if you have pain and the sickness that exhausts.

They want this death-with-dignity affair to go away,
And don't bother our party politicians, so go and pray,
And show some respect for our high class Ottawa elites,
Because they were elected to their parliamentary seats.

PREVENT NEEDLESS SUFFERING AT THE END …  MAR 3RD, 2015
BY
JAMES BREDIN

The Supreme Court gave our politicians a year to change the law,
But now our politicians might delay delay and can't see the flaw,
There is no doubt that the various religions are involved,
They oppose all suicides and don't want this problem changed or resolved.


These pompous preachers on pulpits call all suicides a sin,
Therefore we the sick elderly sinners, are confused in a spin,
So the sins of suicides they want to have delayed,
They say It might cause our present legal system to degrade.

Why are we the people stuck, entombed in this place?
Is this democracy without referendums, right in our face?
What can we do to get death with dignity accepted?
Just listen to the news and do nothing as expected.
