WaPo Weingarten’s Poem on Hitchens

While many reporters offered their personal thoughts and feelings about Vanity Fair‘s Christopher Hitchens after his death, WaPo‘s Gene Weingarten took a few moments this week during a web chat largely on fecal humor to share his feelings through poetry. A reader wrote in and asked if he had any commentary on Hitchens’ death and his thoughts about him as a writer. He replied, “As soon as I learned of Hitchens’s death, I twote this”:

Christopher Hitchens ceases to be –
A remarkable life he led
He isn’t in heaven; he isn’t in hell,
He is simply, emphatically, dead.
