YOU CAN’T APPLY TO DIE
Why is there such opposition to dying-with-dignity here and now?
Is it religions or organizations that refuse to allow?
Why are our politicians so reluctant to change the law?
Why do our appointed senators do nothing but hem and haw?
Do they actually think that they themselves will never die?
So there’s no need to have it all arranged or even apply,
What can we do to get them to recognize death; and talk about this?
And not treat it as nothing and then just delay and dismiss.
If Quebec gets death-with-dignity; can we go there too?
Or will the appointed Supreme Court jump in and say “No queue!”
Will the Sue Rodriguez issue jump back to life?
Dying of Lou Gehrig’s disease in her painful dying strife.
