You can say what you like

And we don’t have to like you

And somehow the world

Goes on turning despite you.

But whatever you think

And whatever you preach

This is not about you

Or your freedom of speech.

It’s not about you

And you didn’t get shot

And it “could just as easily be”

But it’s not.

And they weren’t “only people

Who wanted to dance”

And it wasn’t a club

That was chosen by chance.

It was not an attack

Upon you or your culture

You tone-deaf, insensitive 

Cold hearted vulture.
