„Life carries on
In the people I meet
In everyone that’s out on the street
In all the dogs and cats
In the flies and rats
In the rot and the rust
In the ashes and the dust
Life carries on and on and on and on.“

—  Peter Gabriel, I Grieve

They fought the dogs and killed the cats“

—  Robert Browning English poet and playwright of the Victorian Era 1812 - 1889
Context: Rats! They fought the dogs and killed the cats, And bit the babies in the cradles, And ate the cheeses out of the vats, And licked the soup from the cooks' own ladles, Split open the kegs of salted sprats, Made nests inside men's Sunday hats, And even spoiled the women's chats By drowning their speaking With shrieking and squeaking In fifty different sharps and flats. The Pied Piper of Hamelin, line 10 (1842).
