Forsooth

euthanasia

Euthanized – by accident! Am I
surprised? Hardly here nor there
excepting where a family is sore
amazed their aged mother died.
Too old to cut it anymore, full
of ills without a cure beyond
what palliative care could ever
ease she lay ostensibly ‘asleep’

Claiming medics failed is not a
point of moot, they botched their
brief to keep the family appraised –
were placed in jeopardy for saying
death’s a pure release of suffering
before she’d even passed away.
