Of youths who left their marks on earth!

When only nineteen, were burned at stake.

Hanged by British at twenty one!

Not yet thirty, passed heaven portals.
… ALEXANDER THE GREAT, it is verified
Before thirty three, had conquered and died.
… SCHUBERT AND MOZART, by age of thirty five
Were famed composers, but not alive!

Was painting in heaven!

Would they be in slime?
