Canto XLII

And so we reach the canto that supplies
the answer to the greatest of all questions—
the final answer to the meaning of life

the universe and everything’s a lesson
that in its falling flat has demonstrated
that good questions become lifetime companions

and answers always have been overrated.

    I got to the end of the first stanza and got all excited…at last, the great bard of Slough was about to reveal the ultimate truth for which I have been searching all my life.

    All I got was that the question is more important than the answer. You don’t know do you. Like most Gurus you have feet of clay. 🙂
