A euthanasia Bill currently before the New Zealand Parliament is another step towards pandering to the darker side of human nature. Our Parliament has already authorised the killing of unwanted, unborn children of irresponsible men and women.

there will come a moment
when time catches up with you

there is nowhere to run
no place to hide

you are not alone
it's all there

everything once set off to the side-still undone
the best plans still perfectly laid upon the drawing board
