Kurt Vonnegut, November 11, 1922 - April 11, 2007


God bless you Mr. Vonnegut.

... a poem written by Mr. Vonnegut called "Requiem," which
has these closing lines:

When the last living thing

has died on account of us,

how poetical it would be,

if Earth could say,

in a voice floating up


from the floor

of the Grand Canyon,

"It is done."

People did not like it here.
