modus vivendi


Modus vivendi: (1) a way of living; (2) an arrangement or agreement allowing conflicting parties to coexist peacefully




In modus vivendi life was a dream

a truce between parties opposed,

an ancient wineskin bursting its seams

In modus vivendi life was a dream.

Harrows and hallows and all things between

can never detract from the path that I chose.

In modus vivendi life was a dream,

but now the new wine has made friends become foes

and recklessly altered the path that I chose.
