Poetry in notions
Prophets are often profitable but never prophetable.
Golden lads and girls all must, As chimney-sweepers, come to dust.
Religion and Fascism are constantly being retrieved from the dustbin by people who know they can make good use of them.
Life is an exam paper with a series of questions. For some people the questions get easier towards the end, for others harder. You have to mark your own paper, there is no examiner. Pass mark is 50%, and no-one has ever scored 100%. Good luck.
