Billy's Obituary

May 10, 2011

Words can have such meaning
Be cruel, be kind, be silly
We never think they affect someone
As they affected Billy
A gay, a fag, a different sort
He should have felt acceptance
Instead we gave him words that hurt
Crude drawings on his desk
He felt as low as the grounds dark dirt
He stood as statuesque
We gave him but a passing glance
Expectance that he'll bounce back
He spent his days in drugs fine haze
They found his body in the street
Overdosed on pure cocaine
