Robert Browning
Tell me if the salad is tasty.
It gets quite soggy with a bloody steak.
Poking the flagstone of dead flesh
From the slow side of the stampede,
The leaking juices form a cold puddle
Of post-life, hoisting olive-oil
Skimmers around like
Jolly-dancing pall bearers.
Can you feel the beat that they rock to?
It flattened that poor heifer
Into a pallid schnitzel
To go with my filament fries
And gallons of pinking mayo.

Robert Browning, English poet and playwright, was born today in 1812.

Prof. Colin Pillinger, English planetary scientist, died today in 2014.
