DYING IN SEVERE PAIN… MAR 27TH, 2014
Does democracy mean anything where our politicians are crying?
Where our eighty percent favor medically-assisted dying,
It’s a contentious issue our Ottawa elites all say,
And we are only allowed to think, “be that as it may.”
And why are our elite upper echelon so isolated up there?
How can they continue to pretend that they are unaware?
How long do we have to wait until they change their minds?
When and if there is an election for these political kinds?
Half the countries in Europe and ten US states have it now,
Though our Supreme Court and politicians still won’t allow,
There is obviously a fault line here that we should correct,
We can’t figure out when or how to die or if we can select.
