The being of being is Being;
The being of nothing is none.
And if you find this so much nonsense,
At least it will do you no harm.

Now nothing is nothing, for certain;
And something is something, for sure.
Since something cannot come from nothing,
It must be eternally there.

And though it is hard to imagine
Since time is our air and our sea,
No thing will ever be nothing,
Though we will not always be we.
