I've been formatting a course called "Caminando en paz" (Walking in peace), so I thought this poem would be appropriate for how NOT to walk in peace!
I'm running low on poems lately, although I still have a couple great ones to share. I don't do much poetry reading, and the "local" library here in San Juan (in other words, the McManus library!) doesn't have a whole lot to to offer in the way of poetry! But now and then I find something that is really good and speaks to me in a way I can understand.

In the tops of the cedars
ten crows are quarreling.
They do not believe in
conflict management. Now
they are flying off, glaring
at each other. Nothing
has been settled.
Know anyone like that??
