DEATH IS COMING... MAR 14TH,2013


DEATH IS COMING … MAR 14TH,2013
BY
JAMES BREDIN

The obituaries now list too many people that I knew,
Some of them were old comrades and some were on the same crew,
Though some were senior officers with too much attitude,
Thought they were up near god because of their high latitude.




So death is really the great equalizer at the end of life,
No more health problems and no more attitudes and no more strife,
Though some religious types believe there is life after death,
But no one has ever come back from the grave, to prove it yet.




And death-with-dignity is not allowed by our very High Courts,
That's what they told Sue Rodriguez though no public support,
We should be able to arrange the date and time to die,
If we had binding referendums, we wouldn't have to ask why?
