Them Tribute Hunters

Should I say the man is kind, loving, and helpful whereas he is the very opposite, and really is an epitome of meanness?

Should I say he is godly and wise and is a scion of integrity whereas we all know differently? ‘Say good things because he’s retiring o!’ They would insist.

What if he’s the bastion of corruption, an amalgamate of nepotism and the grandchild of all that is bad – of pure evil?

You agree I have a point but does this honesty that I hold myself to change if he’s dead and I am ‘not to speak evil of the dead?’

Tell them not to request a tribute from me if they don’t want the truth. What I know the man to be alive is what people will hear from me about him when he dies or is leaving.

I hereby put y’all ‘Awon’ tribute hunters on notice.

  1. A very perplexing dilemma!
    Death is a leveler. At death, the living is totally conned by the innocence that is the deceased powerlessness.
    He is presumed innocent by his inability to make a defense of the known evils of his life. But then too, there is the misplaced fear of the dead, which ascribes powerfulness to them.

  2. Who is being hurt by truth, the deceased or his survivors? It’s a perplexing dilemma really. The dead know nothing. And if the Tribute can get the living to change their ways, why not?

  3. The pain of the loss of a loved one may be worsened if the truth is told, hence the saying, “speak no evil of the dead”.
    And what good will it do if the truth be laid bare? Afterall, “the dead know nothing “.
    Let there be no tribute.
    Silence in itself tells a lot.
