(with apologies in many directions for so many things)
On the fellow who ran down the Capitol police, or the other guy who shot all those women, or that vile fellow in Nova Scotia, or …(insert tragedy here)
Individualism is all very well
Until yours sends mine right to hell
You may have a truly bad day
But you’ve no right to make mine that way
So please keep your self-pity on hold
You just aren’t that vital, you know
And don’t think you are right to kill
Just because your wee life treats you ill.
PS: Though suicide is often quite sad
And I so hope you don’t feel that bad
Please pause to have a wee think
About those you drive to the brink.
Killing cops so they shoot you is crazy
(Or maybe its just kinda lazy?)
