Every jungle has its own rules…
Humans call it jungle law!
All animals in the jungle coexist
Inspite of being on the menu of one another.
They fight one another when there is threat to life
Or protecting their progeny or for food.
The wild animals do not have any separate policing species
We, the civilized men and women, cannot survive
Without the police and the armed forces.
We do have the brains to build guided missiles,
But we are terribly misguided
By our own selfishness
We discourse on independence
But woefully dependent on everyone and every thing
The Neanderthal species lived in jungles
They jiggled and built cities
We now live in concrete jungles
And sing a new jingle of the latest jungle law
Should all of us be in the zoo?
