Get Listed - August - Carpe Diem -- Real Toads
Robin Williams died this Monday.
at 63." That was Monday.
This is today, Wednesday,
We will miss him.
put it in her now mortal poem, Lady Lazarus:
"Soon, soon the flesh
The grave cave ate will be
At home on me
At home on me And I a smiling woman.
I am only thirty.
And like the cat I have nine times to die."
She took her life when she was 30 and
could not wear her skin again ever.
Only her poem is mortal.
The headlines of the tomorrows will have passed
pretty much over Mr. Williams,
will history remember him at all?
Life goes on.
Mainly noble persons, barbaric villains, and authors
will be in the encyclopedia, home to those remembered.
And mainly the generations alive today
will be the ones who remember Robin Williams.
They will tell of their favorite movie they watched, perhaps
even bought. My favorite was RV, a 2006 film, really funny.
The List today is dreary today. A soul has passed,
passed from earth to who knows where.
I believe there are only two, perhaps three places it can go:
Heaven, Hell, Purgatory
May he RIP. We are missing you.
