ONE RADICAL THOUGHT … OCT 2ND, 2014
If you are lucky enough to survive to a hundred and five
And you know by then, that you haven't got much more time to stay alive,
You cannot choose the way, the when or the where, you will die,
Because death with dignity is banned and there is no reason why.
Though Quebec and four US states have changed their laws,
But we are not allowed and not even allowed to see these flaws,
We need one politician with a loud voice who can see the light,
Because those we have now, seem to be dull and not too bright.
This subject is not talked about because religious folk distain,
Not like Sue Rodriguez they said, but she died in awful ALS pain,
It's not easy to focus your thoughts on your last breath on earth,
The most radical thought you ever had since the day of your birth.
