The Messianic Age (1)

Michael Peach

If comes the time the world is split
‘Tween selfish Mammon and sore Islam,
Within this rift the Jews could fit:
All set to spread the healing balm.

For, through their varied history,
The Jews have learnt that to survive
They must both save community
And let the individual thrive:

A paradox which only works
Providing each intuits well
That while inside him Ego lurks
There also God does surely dwell.
