James Bredin Poems
Death With Dignity Please
If I die and I will and I don't know where or when or why, And I can't do anything about it as I wait to say goodbye, But it would be nice to arrange the whole dying affair, Have death with dignity, even though religious groups don't dare.
Why is death with dignity seldom mentioned in our land? Is the mere mention of assisted suicide illegal and banned? In Oregon, Washington and Switzerland; it’s already there, So Canadian media or politicians should not scare.
Multiculturalism is government appeasement for them, For fear that a majority might make a minority feel condemned, It’s the ultimate form of political correctness and trend, In case racism might raise its ugly head and we can’t defend.
RIGHT TO DIE
I feel I should have the right to die when and where I want, And disobey orders from the establishment commandant, It doesn’t matter to me whether I go to heaven or hell, What happens in this world is more important as you can tell.
No Amendments Please
The Americans can make amendments to their Bill of Rights, It seems to solve the problems of many political fights, But Canadians have a problem in trying to change our Charter, Written back around the time of President Jimmy Carter.

When Wıll Summer Arrıve... Mar 5th,2014
This winter has been a combination of white snow and black ice, Then add extremely low temperatures where nothing is nice, Then add stupid politicians that never know what to do, But they are obedient party politicians, tried and true.
Oil On Trains... Mar 6th,2014
It’s obvious we have a problem with large oil tanks on trains, That either leak or explode if the train come off the tracks in flames, These trains should be rerouted away from cities and towns, So that our people and communities can feel safer all around.
One Flew Over the UN Cuckoo's Nest
Our politicians, bureaucrats and appointees want to stay, They like it in NY at the UN and don’t want to move away, But Canada was turned down for a Security Council place, Indeed this appears like a terrible UN slap in the face.
DYING WITH DIGNITY FEB 9TH 2011
DYING WITH DIGNITY FEB 9TH,2011 I’M NOT TOO PLEASED ABOUT DYING SO READ ON AND I’LL TELL YOU WHY,
DYING WITH DIGNITY... APR 6TH,2013
Dying with dignity is about living life on our own terms, When and if we get our euthanasia; this will be confirmed, We should not need to go to court for permission to die, To have some high court judge refuse while looking us in the eye.
THE JUVENILE OFFENDERS ACT
The Juvenile Offenders Act gives soft-on-crime judges an out, While the names of young criminals don’t get published throughout, The statisticians do surveys that say everything is fine, And it doesn’t matter who got off with a whole bunch of crime.

Death With Dignity Please
If I die and I will and I don't know where or when or why,
And I can't do anything about it as I wait to say goodbye,
But it would be nice to arrange the whole dying affair,
Have death with dignity, even though religious groups don't dare.
I suppose I'm lucky, not to know when, where or why I'll die,
And you are too so maybe we should get ready to say goodbye,
You and I and us in the photographs will soon be long gone,
We can't plan for our untimely deaths because they say, it's wrong.
But the Swiss and those in Oregon have death with dignity,
