THE OBITUARIES DEC 31ST, 2012
The obituaries now list too many of my old friends,
So dying seems to be the way to go and the trends,
Many great people I knew for so many years are now all dead,
They seem to have died quietly and nothing much was said.
The big problem about dying is that it can’t be arranged,
Ottawa aristocrats laid down the law and no one thinks it’s strange,
And it can’t be changed because that’s something else they laid down,
The Sue Rodriguez case was once the talk of the town.
Canadians need binding referendums like the Swiss,
Something our embedded aristocrats want us to miss,
The Ottawa establishment elites want nothing to change,
Democracy is not their thing and why should that be strange?
