And so it goes...

Kurt Vonnegut
1922 - 2007

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.

-Excerpt from “Requiem,” a poem from Kurt Vonnegut Jr.’s last book “A man without a country
