“Ask Not the Ferryman”

Ask not the ferryman

which way the river runs,

for he is blind to the current

and steers with the shore.

 

Ask not the ferryman

who’s to give your toll,

for they poor of pocket

give gifts of gilded gold.

 

Ask not the ferryman

when you shall return,

for you are on a one-way

path to the gates of hell.
