    Radiation burns. Men did this to me. Men and their wars.
    —Charles Beaumont (1930–1967)

    Mortality, behold, and fear,
    What a change of flesh is here!
    Think how many royal bones
    Sleep within this heap of stones,
    Hence removed from beds of ease,
    Dainty fare, and what might please,
    —Francis Beaumont (1584-1616)

    Know from this the world’s a snare,
    How that greatness is but care,
    How all pleasures are but pain,
    And how short they do remain:
