The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Charter Rights to Life and Death

Charter Rights to Life and Death


James Bredin

Homicide is not allowed except to abort a baby,
You canít have euthanasia and no ifs ands or maybes,
Because the abortion crowd went all the way to the Supreme Court,
So they didnít need any political party support.

But no doctor assisted-suicide for terminally ill,
Even though excruciating pain might be near enough to kill,
Except in Holland or Oregon or faraway places like that,
No quick way out for you, compliant obedient brat.

So sometimes wonder why you canít have an easy way out,
They could change the laws so as to avoid your pain and doubt,
But our politicians wonít touch this with a sixty-foot pole,
So who will go to the Supreme Court to regain people control?

Euthanasia should be one of those established Charter Rights,
And no need to be involved in an expensive legal fight,
This is not only a health care issue but about life and death,
Close to the time when you will be taking your very last breath.
