Kurt Vonnegut’s Last Words


Well, not quite, probably. But the last words of his final story, Man Without a Country are:

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
Perhaps
From the floor
Of the Grand Canyon,
“It is done.
People did not like it here.”

Kurt Vonnegut
1922 – (two years ago today) 2007
R.I.P.
