WTF Wed,. May 2

In London there are lots of old cemeteries, some big like Highgate, some so teeny you wouldn't know they were there if you weren't looking for them. Bunhill Fields has traffic and office buildings all around it, but once you're in the gate, the old walls and trees make an Alice-through-the-looking-glass contrast. There are famous folks buried there like Daniel Defoe and William Blake, but this is my favorite. The inscription reads :

In 67 months she was tapd 66 times
Had taken away 240 gallons of water
Without ever repining at her case
Or ever fearing the operation
