The Peace Jungle is 21

Posted on June 25, 2017 with 0 comments

The Peace Jungle is turning

21, has finally come of age

After what once seemed like

Endless adolescent crises


The music had become

Passion without discipline

The religion had become

Discipline without passion


Finally diagnosed, the

Underlying disease

Struts loud and proud

Emotional illiteracy


Good does not mean

Troubles never arise.

Good address evil in

Accordance with its truth


So musical passion is now

Learning academic discipline

And religious discipline soars

In the passion of its ritual


The Peace Jungle is 21

All grown up and leaving

Home, perhaps to start

A Forest of its own.
