Kurt Vonnegut - RIP

The NY Times does it best by ending Mr. Vonnegut's obit with these lines from his poem "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


from the floor

of the Grand Canyon,

“It is done.”

People did not like it here.
