An earnest fellow cringed guiltily
Because his elderly kin
Lingered on in life so painfully,
He craved leave to administer
A coup de grâce to the man,
And so approached a Minister
In order to detail his plan.
If there was a rule a relative
Could decide to throw the switch,
No more in pain would a victim live
And hug doom without a hitch.
Such murders are compassionate
And lovingly boost the feelings
That the victim was asking for it,
Ceasing strife and other dealings.
