Everybody loves you, after -
When you’re no longer a threat.
They never much cared for you,
In life – They ridiculed and belittled you,
But – They love you in death.
In Life – they misrepresented you.
In death – They misappropriate you.
They add and subtract,
Chop and change,
Until in death, no one remembers –
What you stood for – in life.
Nothing can be done about that -
That’s the way of this world,
The way of all flesh.
That's just what happens to Legends
When they return home far too soon.
