Before we reach another landmark number, one which will create a situation in which every second number is an odd number, I feel that this should be posted. It is so very sad, so very tragic, and so well summed up in the last line.

Lament on the Death of Willie
       by Julie A. Moore

Willie had a purple monkey climbing on a yellow stick,
And when he sucked the paint all off it made him deathly sick;
And in his latest hours he clasped that monkey in his hand,
And bade good-bye to earth and went into a better land.

Oh! no more he'll shoot his sister with his little wooden gun;
And no more he'll twist the pussy's tail and make her yowl, for fun.
The pussy's tail now stands out straight; the gun is laid aside;
The monkey doesn't jump around since little Willie died.
