RIP Charles Krauthammer Dead at 68

A great mind and master of the English language has died
The rampage of cancer his body and modern medicine could not deny
Charles Krauthammer, a  man paralyzed from a dive
Never quit as he  made the English language come alive
Completed medical school unable to stand on his feet
Never let being confined to a wheel chair bring him to defeat
His essays were icons of clear and probing thought
His opinions his readers eagerly sought
A brave courageous fight to the end to his death accept
His mark on journalism none of us will soon forget
God is waiting for you as wordsmith and analyst in chief
May you rest in peace and may your soul find tranquil relief
