Another guy
more famous now he's dead.
Strange how his work improves
now that there will be no more.

Critics can't get over it.
The genius is all there
in the stuff they panned years ago.
Their words ring with indignation:
"You would have made our job simpler
had you died years ago.".

The public is buying his books
by the truckload.
Gun to the head...
great career move.

When he's even deader,
he'll become part of the school curriculum.
Kids will have to read him then
so they will turn against the poor guy.

Nothing kills an author
like being required reading.
So, once again,
a guy long dead
goes to his grave.
