"Oh! I must be turning into a god"
The Emporor Vespasian

Not last words but two epitaphs:

On David Lloyd-George

"Lloyd-George, no doubt,
When life ebbs out,
Will ride in a firey chariot.
He'll be driven 'in State',
On a red-hot plate
With Satan and Judas Iscariot"

On Oscar Wilde: (I've heard this attributed to Whistler)

"When Oscar went to meet his God,
'twas earth to earth and sod to sod.
It was for sinners such as this
Hell was created bottomless."
