As you've probably figured out by now, I have a soft spot for W.H. Auden. Here's one reason why:
As the Poets Have Mournfully Sung[The rest of the poem has been removed because it’s almost certainly still in copyright. But I doubt you’ll have any trouble finding it on the Web.]
by W. H. Auden
As the poets have mournfully sung,
Death takes the innocent young,
No exposition needed today.
