Jesus Christ, Fanny Brice,

Wolfie Mozart and Humphrey Bogart and
Genghis Khan and
On to H. G. Wells.

Ho Chi Minh, Gunga Din

Henry Luce and John Wilkes Booth
And Alexander's
King and Graham Bell.

Ramar Krishna, Mama Whistler,
Patrice Lumumba and Russ Colombo,

Karl and Chico Marx,
Albert Camus.

E. A. Poe, Henri Rousseau,

Sholom Aleichem and Caryl Chessman,

Alan Freed and
Buster Keaton too.

And each one there

Has one thing shared:

They have sweated beneath the same sun,

Looked up in wonder at the same moon,

And wept when it was all done

For being? done too soon,

For being? done too soon.

For being? done.
