The Works of Lord Byron (ed. Coleridge, Prothero)/Poetry/Volume 7/Substitute for an Epitaph
SUBSTITUTE FOR AN EPITAPH.
Kind Reader! take your choice to cry or laugh;
Here Harold lies—but where's his Epitaph?
If such you seek, try Westminster, and view
Ten thousand just as fit for him as you.
[First published, Lord Byron's Works, 1832, ix. 4.]
