Jumping the gun

The distraught theatre-goer stood up

in Ford’s theater & solemnly exclaimed,

“… And now he belongs to the ages.”

Then he glanced up to the balcony

to see President Lincoln still watching

                                                       the play.

Said the gentleman, quickly sitting back down,

“Oops, spoke too soon.”
