Show Some Respect for the Dead   Leave a comment

I know he used a gun
I know he was a Muslim
I know he wanted to be a cop
I know he wanted to be martyr

But don’t shout all this at me,
Just stop.
Show some respect for the dead.

They didn’t die for your Muslim ban
They didn’t die for your gun control
They didn’t die for your party
They didn’t die for your political pursuits

They died by misguided hate
A monster killed them
So show some respect for the dead

They have families that loved them
They have friends that miss them
They have children who mourn them
They have lovers who lost them

I know the outrage is real, but please wait
At least a day
And show some respect to the dead

Give them your thoughts
Give them your prayers
Give them your sympathies
Give them your tears

The time to debate and argue will come
But for now
Please show some respect for the dead
