Inside Job

I hear a lot of talk
about the need
to create peace on earth
from people
who seem to be
constantly at war
within themselves.

While I appreciate
the tenor
of that tune
they sing,
perhaps it might be best
if they hummed
a few bars
in front of the mirror
first.

It’s true
that much of this world
has gone mad,
but it’s also a fact
that no solutions
will ever come
from the hearts and minds
of those who are
still insane
in the membrane.
