Death With Dignity Soon... Feb 3rd,2014
Our politicians avoid death-with-dignity like the plague,
They just avoid the subject completely and become very vague,
As if they themselves will never die so there’s no need to ask why,
And they have party instructions that seriously apply.
Binding referendums mean that politicians should share,
Power to the people but our politicians don’t really care,
And certain issues cannot be swept under the rug forever,
Though death-with-dignity cannot be discussed - never.
People try to avoid their deaths for as long as they can,
In fact, if people had their way, death would be banned,
And we would all live forever but this cannot be done,
But who knows, it would be nice and might even be fun.
And what terrible disease will eventually cause my death?
If we had death-with-dignity it could be avoided, you bet,
I’m not sure whether its religion or stupidity that has caused this,
And they are forbidden to read the Constitution of the Swiss.
