What would our friend Sisyphus do
if someone stole his precious rock?
My guess is he would continue
his usual uphill and downhill walk.

I see him push back his unruly hair
as I walk endlessly, aimlessly, alone.
I press my palms against invisible air
Sisyphus, at least, has his trusty stone.

The rock for Sisyphus is a punishment given by Gods! As all of us are condemned to live, we all must have a rock. Dont you think so? :)

Stealing the rock would be going beyond Absurdism. It'd probably walk into the realm of an um-imaginable empty life. Thankfully, we are far from it!

Very nice idea indeed.
