When a good man dies,
Bad men pay it no mind,
     it’s not their loss.
When an upright man falls,
Wicked men think, see,
     what good did all that do?
When a righteous man passes,
Sinful men say with a grin, "So sad,
     sure sucks to be him."
It's truly so much more sad
     so few see the truth: It's not
          that they're missing out,
               being taken from the world,
But that they are being
     spared needless time
          walking amongst the
               dead already;
When it's more they are
     being removed from all evil
          in this dark world instead.

Isaiah 57:1-2
