resistance is not futile


#NotDeadYet----------------don't look to them for help
and simply work for those
who have no rights
in our society
the mentally ill and those without insight

and when they tell you to stay silent
or they will ban you
don't look to them for help
and simply work for those
who have no rights 
in our society
the mentally ill     and those without insight

who decides who lives and who dies?
who makes the decisions that are permanent?
who tells families to give into the bureaucracy at AHS
and Covenant Health?
who makes the Trespass to Premises legislation
that keeps the advocates bound and silenced?
who uses lawsuits to ensure compliance to injustice?

who makes these decisions?
its not the families 
we are given shells within shells
we are told to trust them
but our families die for no damn reason   and then who can save them?
my handicapped sister was on the DNR list
at the Grey Nuns Hospital    she would have died but we resisted

resistance is not futile
I tell you these stories
so that when you go into the ICU
and they tell you 
the same stories that they told us
that you don't give up
and that you fight for those you love


don't listen to the government of Alberta
and the health authorities
you can do it      you can save your beloved family members
I show you my handicapped sister that they told us
was nothing worth saving
here she is       with me      alive
because we never gave into the spin machine of premature termination
