As each shall take their leave
another follows in their stead
with scarce a beat between
each exit and each entrance
controlled by one more powerful
than all the players ever stood upon this stage
or yet to walk its hallowed boards
and yet the deeds of men
shall be noted down
that those yet to be
shall know the triumphs and disasters of the age
and reflect upon the whole
that lives long spent will not wasted be.
