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.

Athens, 1810.
[First published, Lord Byron's Works, 1832, ix. 4.]
