The Strangest Epitaph Ever written 07/26/2016

Benjamin Franklin composed this epitaph:

The body of
B. Franklin, Printer.
Like the cover of an old book,
Its contents torn out,
And stripped of its lettering and gilding,
Lies here, food for worms;
Yet the work itself shall not be lost,
For it will as he believ’d
appear once more,
In a new, and more beautiful edition,
Corrected and improved
By The Author.
