image for Famous Poet Laureate Commits Suicide. Leaves Suicide Poem.

Ivana Poker, famous Southern poet from Macon, Georgia was found hanged in her apartment this morning -- an apparent suicide.

Friends and relatives have stated that Ms. Poker, winner of the 1986 Nobel Prize in Literature,had been depressed and disconsolate the past few months after the sudden and unexpected death of her husband of 76 years, Hiram. He died at Macon General Hospital after being admitted for an elective hemorrhoidectomy.

At Ms. Poker's apartment, the police discovered a suicide note, which, true to form, was in the nature of one last poetic gesture.

Elegy To Hiram

Ah wunder why
Ya had tuh die
An' miss mah cherry pie fillin'
Ah am so-oo-o pissed
Dat da doctor missed
Yaw allergy tuh penicillin

Funeral services are still under consideration.
