Kurt Vonnegut Jr RIP

Obit: NYT
Slaughterhouse-Five: wiki
Cold Turkey: In These Times
The closing lines of Vonnegut's Requiem (circa 2005):
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.
Vonnegut? He's gone. So it goes.
