Surely this has been used.

I didn’t hit forty. Forty hit me.

    I’m not sure even Forty would hit that.

  2. “If dirges and planned lamentations could put off death,
    Men would be singing for ever…” – Sophocles (Creon to Antigone)

        Ladies and gentlemen: let’s have a very warm welcome for If Dirges and the Planned Lamentations!

          My dear friend Ernie Grimm has never shared my fear of death. Quite the opposite; there are times when he muses on how great it’s gonna be (provided he makes the cut, of course). So on his most recent birthday, I wrote him this toast:

          Mrs. Grimm has troubled sleep
          She dreams that Death has come to reap
          her man, who just hit forty-three
          But Ernie’s sleep is trouble-free
          He grins and dreams of sweet release
          When he can finally rest in peace
          So here’s to Ernie – lucky him
          Who finds the Reaper not so Grimm
