Yonder, beyond all understanding
We find what is incomprehensible
The meaning of life at the black stump.
Where all seems to be uncivilized
Beyond, far beyond, we find ourselves
Some call it Erewhon, nowhere to be.
Digging below we find life-giving waters
Essential to all life that is, and before
Drink heartedly, washing brows, now.
