A member of parliament proposed

A member of parliament proposed

that when we’re ready, when we’re ripe,

we might have another do us in.

All we’ll need is a

“durable,

well-considered,

intrinsic

death wish.”

Serving us will be the

“end-of-life facilitator,”

a fully-equipped and professionally-trained

practitioner of the art of the new humane.

We’ll have to be 75, of course,

and there’ll be meetings involved –

bureaucracy will have its day –

but wish we may and dream we might:

the government will give us night!
