Please, I've done everything I was supposed to do. Can I go home now?

When the last living thing
Has died on account of us,
How poetical it would be
If Earth could say,
In a voice floating up
Perhaps
From the floor
Of the Grand Canyon,
"It is done.
People did not like it here."

The last lines that Kurt Vonnegut wrote, in his last book.

Vonnegut, Vonnegut-- so sometimes fatalistic.
