“The owl and the chimpanzee went to sea
In a lovely boat known as The Thoughts
The owl was smart, intelligent and good
The chimp was a little bit behind
The owl made selections, primarily based on truth
And knew the place to steer its ship.

The chimp reacted a little bit too quick
And infrequently the boat would tip
The waves would come and crash aboard
The chimp would begin to cry
Massive tears would roll proper down his face
Afraid that he would die

The chimp and the owl would wrestle at evening
When the world was quiet and nonetheless
The chimp would leap up and rock the boat
And the boat would begin to fill

Then the owl stepped in and grabbed a pail
And began to empty it out
And the chimp would begin to get fairly cross
And would usually scream and shout
The battle continued evening after evening
Till the chimp began to see
That if it let the owl take management
A extra peaceable evening it could be.”

This poem written by Jo Camacho, articulates the interior workings of a human. Some could expertise inside conflicts the place their mind (chimp mind) creates irrational ideas and beliefs.
