Dorothy Parker is said to have written in the guest book of Hearst's castle at San Simeon:

Upon my honor,
I saw a Madonna
Standing in a niche
Above the door
Of the private whore
Of the world's worst son of a bitch.

I also rather like

The days will rally, wreathing
Their crazy tarantelle;
And you must go on breathing,
But I'll be safe in hell....
