Passive Euthanasia

Here’s a poem on passive euthanasia, which has been allowed by the Supreme Court, by Dr. Amrinder, for Different Truths.

In case, I become a terminal case
Do not put me on to a ventilator.
Keep it free for those who can survive
Instead of letting the hopeless, linger on.

In case, I become a terminal case
Please do not resuscitate
Let my battle-weary, time-scarred body
Lay down arms, with quiet dignity.

In case, I become a terminal case
Please, no life support for me.
Why keep alive a lifeless life
When, it no longer wants to live.

In case, I become a terminal case
With sunken eyes and wrinkled skin
No amount of IV fluids can restore the
Shrivelled form, to its former glory.

So, just put a flower in my hair
And bid your final farewells,
And let a life well lived rest,
At last, in eternal peace.
