So Said The Lighthouse Keeper - text
Indeed I am an epitaph to man
For having witnessed mass destruction like you've never dreamed and worse

So be warned or be mourned tomorrow
And from your deafness do desist
And pray take heed of this
For your present course can only end in sorrow..."
As he wiped a teardrop from his nose
Upon which his spectacles rose and gazed out to the stars
And like a portrait still he stared
And sighing to himself declared
"I must invent the perfect prayer
Not yours, not mine, but ours
Might lead us to eternal peace
The ultimate philosophy
Some simple, single phrase." The old and much encumbered man
Then came to rest with head in hand
and thought away
His last remaining day.
Death told him "You'll not die in vain"
And on his lips the fatal kiss was placed
The old man uttered one last breath
And had we heard his parting word
