The Taser's Edge


The Third Cow

Now the Third Cow is herself the end of the world. In that land there is nothing that is not the Third Cow–horns and hooves and tail and ears. They could have traveled on and on and still have found themselves nowhere but upon the body of the Third Cow, for it fills the world and is the world. For many days they sought the Cow’s head, and at last they found it–a great, staring form of eyes and nostrils and a huge mouth that gaped like a cave. And the Cow spoke to them with the voice of a cave.

(Richard Adams, Tales from Watership Down)
