DEATH WITH DIGNITY AND YOU ... DEC 19TH, 2014
Too many of my old comrades died in hospital beds,
Though I can still remember almost everything they said,
They had no choice about when, where or how they would die,
Without doctor assisted death, they couldn't even ask why?
It's a subject that our politicians will never discuss,
Because in Canada, they believe, it was ever thus,
Though they got it in Quebec which is a mystery to me,
Should we pay attention or pretend we don't see?
We don't have binding referendums so we're stuck,
No death with dignity for you or a non Quebec Canuck,
And our politicians are busy at the moment, here and there,
Without death-with-dignity, we don't have a prayer.
