Yusuf Adamu

Anangu’s sacred site, Australia’s landmark
The large sandstone rock of Ayers fascinates me
Like the last man standing, so you stand
Alone, isolated, majestic and awesome
A World Heritage site and original people’s pride
Indeed, you seasonally change your clothes
And glow beautifully red at dawn and dusk

Tradition says you were created by two boys playing
They turned into boulders to continuously guard your grace
Like the sanctity of the royal mummies in the Egypt of old
Curses rain on those who remove any piece of Uluru
Uluru, you attract and fascinate tourists world over
They pay you homage in thousands every year
