HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DOUGLAS NOEL ADAMS!!

(11th March 1952 - 11th May 2001. RIP)

And got this off my friend's LJ: it's a poem by Paul Neil Milne Johnstone, on whom Paula Nancy Millstone Jennings was based:



Douglas Unravel Your DNA Unravel Your Soul
by Paul Neil Milne Johnstone

O Douglas -
Sweet Douglas -
Edulcorated Douglas -

Today we celebrate
Your

Life

As we remember
Your

Death

You were
A
Revolutionary
A
Rebel
A
Giant -
Both literary and
Literally

You got into Cambridge because
Of an essay that
significantly figured the
Beatles
(There are
People who
Love you
For that)

You
Redefined a trilogy as
A five part
Series
(There are
Even more
People who
Love you
For that)

And imagine -
If you hadn't been born
On that fateful Marchday
I wouldn't be as bally famous for my shit poetry that could make that homosexual Jewboy Stephen Fry choke on his fries as I am today
