In Memoriam Wm F Buckley
with Apologies to E J Thribb
                                            
     So.  Farewell then,
     Mr. William F. Buckley,
                                                    
     Junior.  Pencil-chewer.
     Sorry, I mean
     Eraser-nibbler.  But not
     User, I bet, rapid
     Writer
     Of obituaries and
     More…
                                        
     Bon vivant,
     Orthodox communicant,
     Polyhistor-ic savant…
                                                  
     Now we will want
     Records of Firing Line,
     And I need a
     Copy of God
                                 
     And Man at Yale.
     Inscribed!
     And DO NOT CANCEL
     My subscription to
     NR,
     Thank you.
                                       
     And where do you think you’re off to,
     Anyhow?
                                        
     The doldrums have
     Fallen now on us,
     But you,
     You gale,
     Sail on.
                                    
S L Grubb (47)
