The deification of the recently deceased

All sinners become saints,
as soon as they've died.
All the things that they did,
that were bemoaned and cursed over while alive,
become funny stories.
"Oh remember what a card he was, how he used to, that time when he....."
Why should 'speak no ill of the dead' become
Cover him in glory?
