From the definition of "diptych" in the Shorter Oxford English Dictionary:
"Tablets recording a list of the living and the dead who were prayed for at the Eucharist; the names themselves..."
There once was a man with no hair
Who pined for a visage more fair
From days long ago
That all of us know
The death of which all must forbear.
A woman was feeling depressed
Her beauty, she knew, was suppressed
By oncoming age.
The crux of her rage?
An outcome she could not contest.
