MY QUEST BEGAN MORE THAN TWO YEARS AGO
IN PORTLAND, OREGON

I DECIDED TO START WALKING SOUTH
DOWN THROUGH THE USA

I CROSSED THE BORDER TO TAMAULIPAS
THE NORTHERN MEXICAN STATE
AND I HOPED TO WALK FOR TWO MORE YEARS
UNTIL REACHING PATAGONIA

 

I WAS WORKING AS A SUBSTITUTE TEACHER
IN A PUBLIC SCHOOL

UNSATISFIED WITH LIVING IN THE REALM
OF THE CONSUMER SOCIETY

 

A FAMILY IN MEXICO ALLOWED ME TO CARE
FOR SOME OF THEIR DAIRY COWS
WHEN I LEFT THEY GAVE ME A DONKEY CALLED JUDAS
TO HELP ME CARRY LOADS

 

HAVE BURRO,  WILL TRAVEL UNTIL REACHING PATAGONIA
HAVE BURRO,  WILL TRAVEL UNTIL REACHING PATAGONIA
PATAGONIA, PATAGONIA, PATAGONIA

 

EXAGA LET ME STAY IN AN EMPTY SHACK
IN THE POOREST SLUM IN THE POOREST TOWN

I WAS THE GRINGO WITH A DONKEY CALLED JUDAS
ON THE SEARCH FOR THE MEANING OF LIFE

 

EVEN THOUGH THEY STARTED FIRES WITH MY BOOKS AND
EVEN THOUGH THEY ROBBED ME TWICE
EVEN IF IT LOOKS LIKE A HOSTILE PLACE
I NEVER WITNESSED GREATER GENEROSITY
