Get John Donne


Who casts not up his eye to the sun when it rises?
But who takes off his eye from a comet, when that breaks out?
Who bends not his ear to any bell, which upon any occasion rings?
But who can remove it from that bell,
Which is passing a piece of himself out of this world?

No man is an island entire of itself; every man
is a piece of the continent, a part of the main;
if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe
is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as
well as if a manner of thy friends or of thine
own were; any man’s death diminishes me,
because I am involved in mankind.
And therefore never send to know for whom
the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.

We’re We’re We’re
Working up a plan
So that people can
Bung a bob for a Big Ben Bong
