The Forest and the Forum

Torn between two factions 

Two minds and two hearts 

One, tribal 

The other, civilisation itself 

One that runs through the forest 

Spear in hand

The other in an assembly of men 

Head held high, words with virtue 

My heart wants to return to that forest

Whilst my head wants a place in the forum 

The battle plays out constantly

Between beast and man
