THE PULPIT OR TV… SEPT 9TH, 2013
The death-with-dignity issue is treated as though its a major sin,
Where politicians and bureaucrats think that they cannot win,
They have listened to the preacher and this is what he said,
It could be a serious mortal sin if you make yourself dead.
Our Supreme Court told Sue Rodriguez that she couldn’t die,
Already dying with Lou Gehrig’s disease and she wondered why,
She got an anonymous doctor to help with her suicide,
Too many secrets here that we don’t know so can’t confide.
The unknown factor in our lives is the date, time and place we will die,
So we don’t know when or how or where to say our final goodbye,
It’s a life-and-death issue that politicians will not discuss,
And Canadians are left with the wonder but can’t kick up a fuss.
