    Cage, Cunningham, Rauschenberg and Avedon

    Almost fifty
    years ago
    four men
    came together
    to take a
    photograph.

    They were not
    ordinary men.
    Each was
    extraordinary
    and exhibited
    that excellence
    in performance
    and exhibit.

    Our country is
    still blessed
    by these four
    who set standards
    for all of us.

    Today, the last
    of the four died
    and not surprisingly,
    the most athletic.

    Tomorrow others
    will think about
    another picture.

    Civilization and
    culture are made
    so much more
    by these signal
    individuals.
