Ernest Hemingway (21 July 1899 - 2 July 1961 / Oak Park, Illinois)
He busted trusts,
And put his picture in their windows.
'What he'd have done in France!'
Perhaps he would--
He could have died
Though generals rarely die except in bed,
As he did finally.
And all the legends that he started in his life
Live on and prosper,
Unhampered now by his existence.
