DWD is becoming a public issue, despite what they say,
Locked-in Ottawa aristocrats with their feet in clay always obey,
So death-with-dignity is quietly swept under the rug,
Hidden like some strange antidepressant prescription drug.
Has death with dignity been discussed in their quiet back rooms?
And in parliament; why doesn’t this conversation resume?
Has the name Sue Rodriguez ever been mentioned up there?
Has Pauline’s Quebec Bill fifty two, told them to beware?
How could such a big issue remain hidden for so long?
Does someone or anyone know that there’s something very wrong?
Are the media moguls concerned about our democracy?
Or have they too become part of our aristocracy?
