- I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked,
- dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn looking for an angry fix,
- Angel-headed hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection
- to the starry dynamo in the machinery of night,
- ---Allen Ginsburg (1955)
I've seen the greatest minds of my generation destroyed by Twitter.
---Matt Forney (2014)
I hope this allusion is ironic.
