Friends, Forummers, countrymen, lend me your monitors;
I come to ban Aug, not to praise him.
The evil that men do lives after them;
The good oft gets them banned;
So let it be with Aug. The noble Zen
Hath told you Aug was flooding:
If it were so, it was a grievous fault,
And grievously hath Aug answer'd it.
Here, under leave of Zen and the rest--
For Zen is an honourable angel;
So are they all, all honourable angels(and cherubs)--
Come I to speak in Aug's banning.
He was my friend(well,um, sort of), faithful and just to me:(hmm...)
But Zen says he was flooding;
And Zen is an honourable angel.
He hath brought many Forummers home to Heaven
Whose posts did the general threads fill:
Did this in Aug seem like flooding?
When that the poor have cried, Aug hath wept:
Flooding should be made of sterner stuff:
Yet Zen says he was flooding;
And Zen is an honourable angel.
You all did see that on the Lupercal
I thrice presented him a kingly crown,
Which he did thrice refuse: was this flooding?
Yet Zen says he was flooding;
And, sure, he is an honourable angel.
I speak not to disprove what Zen spoke,
But here I am to speak what I do know.
You all did love him once, not without cause:
What cause withholds you then, to mourn for him?
O judgment! thou art fled to brutish beasts,
And men have lost their reason. Bear with me;
My heart is in the coffin there with Aug,(not really)
And I must pause till it come back to me.

-William Shakespeare/The Phoenix

SORRY! I didn't realize that Aug was back! But I spent quite some time over the poem, so I'll leave it here.
