A member of parliament proposed

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

we might have another do us in.

death wish.”

Serving us will be the

“end-of-life facilitator,”

a fully-equipped and professionally-trained

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!
