Why do we have to wait for death in order to shower respect often as a technicality

When we don’t remember them while they are ill or retired

Or read their works again

The artist gets a new life

Hagiography that are hollow

To fill up feeds or airtime

Remember them for their politics

Their art

The bad often more important

For society

2018 is a crowded place in the afterlife


Let’s debate it at prime time
