DEATH WITH DIGNITY … Aug 22nd, 2014
Ottawa politicians refuse to have this discussion,
Because they are anxious about the probable repercussions,
Because in death-with-dignity; the clergy might be opposed,
Therefore in some future election; they might get deposed.
There are more important problems in places overseas,
Bombs and rockets and places with a strange ebola disease,
Global religious conflict on the other side of the globe,
More important than death-with-dignity that could be probed.
Even doctors say it should be up to their sense of right and wrong.
Therefore it shouldn't matter that much, if we should all get along,
But still somehow we are caught between the devil and the deep blue sea,
Politicians don't seem to care that this could mean so much to you and me.
