We don’t know why you did it
But we know we have failed you
Burning Man

You represent millions
With mental illness
Who have no plan

Will we ever address
The ones in need?
Will we ever listen?
Will we ever heed?

Family says
It was just a personal matter
Not a political statement at all
But how can there be any more political statement
Than the indifference of politicians?
