Obituary

Richard Matheson
So long,
And farewell,
Richard Matheson,
Science fiction and horror author.

You are best known for your novel
I Am Legend:
The tale of vampires in a post-apocalyptic
World.
It has been adapted for film in
1964
1971
And 2007
That last one starring Will Smith and the most peculiar motif of a butterfly
I mean, what the f*** was that about?!
Not that it concerns you, that wasn’t in the book.
And your ending was so much better,
Oh, Mr Matheson, I love you!!!!!!!!

You also worked on The Twilight Zone,
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do.
The most famous of which
Was Nightmare at 20,000 Feet
(Not because we’ve seen it,
But because The Simpsons spoofed it).
I think it’s safe to say:
You Are Legend.
