Down The Rabbit Hole


I went to the woods to live deliberately,
To suck the bone marrow out of life,
And to give meaning to meaningless words,

I found a black man there,
With black clothes,
Black shoes,
And black shades,

He asked me if I solved his riddle yet,
No I said,
What’s the answer? I asked

The black man smiled and shook his head,
I haven’t got the slightest idea. He said,

The black man looked at me,
than pointed towards some trees,
The answer is out there,
Beyond what you can see,

I just looked at him,
You must feel a lot like Alice when she first fell down that rabbit hole. He laughed,
I looked smiling at him and said,

Don’t we all sometimes?
