Eventually we will get medically assisted death,
Unfortunately it will take a while, so don’t hold your breath,
The pompous powerful politically correct want their say,
The religious too from high on a pulpit, want it their way.
Dying in pain has been part of life forever and ever,
You are just trying to avoid the pain by being quite clever,
It’s illegal according to the Sue Rodriguez decision,
You have to obey the rules with great legal precision.
Just because Quebec and five US states have it; doesn’t mean a thing,
Our Charter has not been changed so we may be flying on one wing,
Eventually we’ll get medically assisted death,
While politicians, pompous priests and TV pests hold their breath.
