In History They Live On

It will not matter to you if you are remembered or not
So many good people in death are forgot
The names of some very bad people have lived on in time
Though they have been the perpetrators of many a bad crime
That very bad people are remembered for their crimes seems all wrong to me
Their names ought to be wiped from human history
That many good people in death are forgotten seems a sad thing to say
It is far worse to be forgotten than remembered even though not in a good way
So many good deceased people who in life never committed a crime
Have been lost to memory in the decades of time
Whoever does tell you that crime does not pay
Bad criminals are not forgotten when from life they do pass away
The World's worst criminals though life's breath from them long gone
Are remembered today in history they live on.
