    This is the way it seems to go. People seem to do what they want in the absence of your protest and/or suggestions.

    Yes, you're right. Of course when you're dead, you're dead. I don't believe you're anywhere alive somewhere. I wrote these verses just to make an ironic point. I believe you got it. Thanks for reading me and best to you in your writing endeavors.

    Interesting write... I see it as they honored him in his death in THEIR own way... For he was a human... Tho I'm sure many couldn't understand him... or his ways... or how he became who he was... Tho some obviously knew... if it was a small town.

    I wouldn't say they "honored him...in their own way." Outward paraphenalia, religious or otherwise, does not change anyone at death: we die as we lived. Neither does the most elaborate trappings distort God's judgement. Thanks for stopping by, and best to you in your writing endeavors.
