I just followed BGF's precedent.   And to continue, I'll add Ode to Billie Joe.
The stories that I have read online say that "Jeremy" was written about a student committing suicide in a classroom in front of his classmates. However, when I read the lyrics, it sounds to me as if Jeremy may have gunned down his classmates instead:

At home drawing pictures
Of mountain tops
With him on top
Lemon yellow sun
Arms raised in a V
And the dead lay in pools of maroon below

What say you? Suicide or school shooting mass murder?


School shooter
