Thomas hood was a British humorist and poet.. He lived from 23 May 1799 to 3 May 1845. He wrote many poems about the conditions in England that were pressing in that time. One such issue was grave robbing for anatomical purposes. He wrote this poem about this rather serious subject:
Don't go to weep upon my grave,
And think that there I be.
They haven't left an atom there
Of my anatomie.
Thomas Hood.
