WE ARE HERE FOR A WHILE … SEP 19TH, 2014
We should realize by now that we are only here for a while,
And death with dignity is the only way to go out in style,
The death issue cannot be avoided or hidden under the mat,
And no politician bishop or pompous priest will go to bat.
Maybe you think it will never happen because you will never die,
Or that it's so far in the future that there's no need to ask why,
Scotland, Quebec and Switzerland have referendums now,
But here in Ontario, our odd politicians will just not allow.
We need a new politician to come out of the woods and shout,
Get us some changes and say what death-with-dignity is about,
Get us some binding referendums so we the people have control,
And even have an unheard of thing -- a public opinion pole.
