I’ve lit a candle, “liked” some sombre posts.
Expressed my devastation and dismay.
Put all of my emotions on display.
I’ll carry on – I’ve exorcised my ghosts.
Don’t choose anger, crave vengeance, or hate.
Embrace love, and appease and placate.
Just go on as before;
Keep no guard at the door;
Carry on, people – accept your fate.
Express sorrow and woe.
(But don’t mention the foe)
Carry on with hashtags,
And with memes and with flags;
Carry on, and just go with the flow.
