Kurt Vonnegut died at the age of 84. His last book was a collection of biographical essays titled "A Man Without a Country." The book concludes with a poem titled "Requiem".
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, perhaps from the floor of the Grand Canyon, "It is done." People did not like it here.
Thanks to Bill M. for this!
