GETTING YOUR JUNGLE EYES

making peace with the jungle warfare in your head
while the white noise of your life goes on oblivious
your protective shield no longer defends
and the vicious artefacts create problems of their own
and show no mercy
the supposed gate keepers waste your time
and offer no relief
the chemical entails
linger like a ripe fart in an elevator
and some days are better
than others
but the symptoms persist
and the pain is real
and the temporary relief
treating the symptoms
but not the problem
in this fight of your life
it can never be too soon to be getting
your jungle eyes.

Author’s Note, getting your jungle eyes is a military term of what happens when inserted into a jungle situation and your eyes are constantly focusing and refocusing because everything at all distances seems to be a menace until after a couple of days your eyes and mind settle down and you actually start to see thing clearly.
