There once was a palace of greatness,

Inside lived a king dedicated to reality.

Everyday, he would relinquish our blindness,

and set our minds free.

Unafraid of any hardship that may come his way,

our king stood fearless.

Now his palace is in decay,

for he has left for a land more gracious.

Today we may sing this song,

in hopes that our king found prosperity.

May his legacy here be strong,

For this is his Eulogy.

Though he ventured to another land,

his presence will never be forgotten.

Loyal are his students that now stand,

Our king has completed his mission.

From his throne of Literature,

he traded us inspiration for our time.

In the Palace of O'Connor,

Once stood a Sage in his prime.
