I didn't

The Pope passed away
People held vigils and prayed
I didn’t shed a tear
Because I am not Roman Catholic

The tree was split
Then it was lit
I didn’t flinch
Because I am not an environmentalist

The king was coroneted
Everyone celebrated
I didn’t rejoice
Because I am not a monarchist

People watched the parade
Fireworks were set and they served lemonade
I didn’t commemorate
Because I am not a citizen

The children were not fed
Men and women were left dead
I tossed and turned in bed
Because I am human
