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.

IS DEATH WITH DIGNITY DOOMED?      …. MAR 2ND, 2015
BY
JAMES BREDIN

Our gutless Ottawa party politicians are up to their old tricks,
They seem to look down on us as just a group of old hicks,
Its delay delay; now that death-with-dignity has been allowed,
So no doctor-assisted-death for us so keep your head bowed.

Though two thirds of Canadians support death-with-dignity now,
We've been through enough and don't want another row,
Though doctors are not compelled to be involved,
Provincial or federal legislation could get this issue solved.

Quebec already has an assisted suicide law,
Will go into effect later this year without a flaw,
Its legal in ten other countries and five US states,
But still our politicians are reluctant to have this debate.

CANADIAN DEATH WITH DIGNITY ... FEB 25TH, 2015

CANADIAN DEATH WITH DIGNITY … FEB 25TH, 2015

JAMES BREDIN

Our High Court put a deadline, when the rules are to be changed,
So that death-with-dignity can be legally arranged,
Some politicians claim that a year is too short to write a new law,
They want committees to review the affair in case there's a flaw.


Though some very sick people may have to wait in their pain,
While party politicians want to ensure, they are in the right lane,
So I hope you are not one of those sick folks being kept alive,
Waiting for the Death-With-Dignity law to arrive.


While some preachers on the pulpits think that this is great,
Therefore some politicians see no reasons to have a debate,
But where are the politicians we need to get us out of this mess?
So that those who are sick and want to die will have less stress.

WE SHOULD ALL BE AGREED   …   FEB 24TH, 2015
BY
JAMES BREDIN
Some American states still have the death penalty -- good for them!
And they're not afraid to use it on those whom they condemned,
We don't have the death penalty -- not politically correct,
And our lenient court system is not considered a threat.


So the idea that we should maybe change things, is not accepted,
Plus the notion of changes to elections would be intercepted,
Because those who rule the roost are not keen about change,
If something should change, they want to be the ones who arrange.

But we should add binding referendums to Trudeau's Charter,
Some clever politician should and could add another chapter,
This would improve our democracy, which they say, we don't need,
To keep the terrorists out and on this, we should all be agreed.

A FORM OF MADNESS    … FEB 22ND, 2015
BY
JAMES BREDIN

I'm more than a little pissed off at our world affairs,
Certain small countries want war and no one seems to care,
And they want others involved, somewhere way over there,
I thought the UN should figure this out but do they even care?


They should tell these people to cool down and stop these wars,
Learn to tolerate each other -- no more flag carrying killing corps,
Imposing other beliefs and religions is not the way to go,
Someone should tell them this, as many other countries now know.

Every day, we have another death chapter in the papers,
One unholy flag-carrying group pulling another strange caper,
Surely someone can figure a way out of this dilemma,
Because this is madness -- not just religious drama.

TWENTY FORTY TWO    … FEB 14TH 2015

BY

JAMES BREDIN


I would like to die sometime in twenty forty two,

This should not be a problem for me or for you,

Though I hope I'm still active and not just hanging around in bed,

Just lying there half dead or waiting to be fed.



Death with dignity is just a pleasant peaceful way to die,

Allow a very sick person to plan it and then say goodbye,

Don't have to go to Switzerland because we can now do it here,

The High Court finally changed their ways so now we have no fear.



I dread the politician coming out of the woods that is opposed,

Should be thrown out of the party; sent home and deposed,

Of course there are those on pulpits locked in their ways,

And because of them that death with dignity was delayed.

THE ELANE  PLAZA     FEB 13TH, 2015

BY

JAMES BREDIN

The Elane Plaza was a great place but that was before your time,
Shops and theatres and pool hall, lined up in a big long line,
People coming and going to and from the high-up bingo hall,
But someone decided to knock it all down and that was all.

They stole a piece of my heart when they ripped the place down,
The memories, the people, the place gone forever and not a sound,
It was the heart of Scarborough back then for those of us who knew,
Mostly gone or dead now and I can't find even a few.

I suppose that's life and we are all just passing through,
And I can't go back to then -- it's completely gone and nothing new,
Replaced by big brown packed houses though they do look nice,
Even the parking lot is gone now -- no snow, no ice.
