To je teď celá moudrost moje

…from the quills of the dead white poets

František Gellner (1881 -1914)czech_flag_small

To je teď celá moudrost moje:

Milovat hlučnou vřavu boje,

za noci vnikat do snů žen

a trochu býti zadlužen,wine.pour

pískat si, jak mi zobák narost,

vínem si plašit z čela starost,

svůj život rychle utratit,

nic nezískat, nic neztratit.

About Paul Jacko

Jacko was born in Czechoslovakia not long before the communist putsch in February 1948. He studied industrial chemistry there and left in 1969 for Australia, where he became a lawyer and established his own practice. He has now retired and beside hunting, fishing, camping, prospecting and playing golf he amuses himself by writing.
