Rest In Peace (Rest In Price)

'She has died! '
cried out the boy
whose only reason to live
was his crush in grade one

'She has died! '
cried out the teenage mother
whose mistake leaves her in indecision
a war between 'Pro-life' and 'Pro-choice'

'She has died! '
cried the homosexuals
whose preference viewed unethical
and cast as society's new nigger

'She has died! '
cried the emotionally troubled youth
misunderstood by their parents and psychiatrists
silenced and gagged with a bottle of pills

I look away from the mourning
to watch the capitalistic businessmen
carve the names of their companies
into the gravestone to profit
from her name
