The Alchemist

“Continue in the direction of the Pyramids”, said the alchemist. “And continue to pay heed to the omens. Your heart is still capable of showing you where the treasure is.”

“Is that the one thing I still need to know?”

“No”, the alchemist answered. “What you still need to know is this: before a dream is realized, the Soul of the World tests everything that was learned along the way. It does this not because it is evil, but so that we can, in addition to realizing our dreams, master the lessons we’ve learned as we’ve moved toward that dream. That’s the point at which, as we say in the language of the desert, one ‘dies of thirst just when the palm trees have appeared on the horizon.’

“Every search begins with beginner’s luck. And every search ends with the victor’s being severely tested.”

Hapana Mugabe

There was once a man from Zimbabwe
Widely known as Comrade Mugabe
It's time for him to accept his loss
Because he no longer is the boss
And let makorokoto reign again in Zimbabwe

Mugabe Out

a Waterloo limerick

There was once a bloke from Waterloo
Who dreamt he was eating his shoe
He woke up in the night
With a terrible fright
And found it was perfectly true
