Or Byron's epitaph for Castlereagh:

Posterity will ne'er survey
A nobler grave than this:
Here lie the bones of Castlereagh:
Stop, traveller, and piss.

You think you're depressed?

This one's off to the funny papers!

Poem on reading an old thread

So many Posters who once Posted
are vanished—permabanned or ghosted;
the small remainder—once such friends—
Post now with heads lodged in their ends.

The poem at the top is lots of fun,
considering that the good guys won.

I have just realised that this thread is really old (sorry). But it felt like an evening for making quickfire images without worrying about quality, so here's my depressing poem anyway:

Sarah Jane, works for me : ) Gazing down and out at the sea at night from the railing of a boat always sinks me... (Sometimes I ride the night ferry from Nantucket to Cape Cod.)

This thread is back on the radar screen so I quickly wrote this:

Died again today. Twice.
Yesterday too. Black ice
hole comes to get you.
No tomorrow never comes.
