Businessmen have Snouts
Dreamed 2010/11/14 by Wayan
I need to deal with money. I inherited some a few months ago, I researched social/ethical investment funds and picked one I like (Ariel), but was I just haven't acted.
Oh well, does it matter what I do? What any individual does? I bike, I avoid driving, I insulated the house, I put up solar panels, but a hundred million jerks aren't conserving a bit. They vote Tea Party and call global warming a liberal pinko myth. It's November, and so hot I'm sweaty in just a T shirt and shorts.
In the evening, our band the Krelkins meet to practice a new song-set. We were stuck for months, never quite playing our own compositions right--just too complex for a trio! But our rough new four-person arrangements already sound better to me. Adding a fourth is working!
Businessmen now come with snouts.
Not quite trunks, prehensile foot-
long noses. Necks too have gone
half-giraffe. And yet despite
their newlyfound schnoz-height,
giralephants drive squinky little cars--
a swarming hive of Volkswagen
Beetles. You wouldn't think a biz-
giraffe could jam in a Bug, but they
just open the sunroof and pop
that snorkel up. O they're autopup-
peteers. 'Raffish angels, driving such
underpowered bodies. What can
they do in snow? Brrroofless! But then
winter will never wild-white again,
thanks to snouted businessmen.
Bless you, snouted businessmen.
NOTES IN THE MORNING
- The businesscritters echo an old dream of a Stiltdoe and Cenbuck that warned me "time to take care of business." The changes it triggered revolutionized my life, let me quit working for others! So the businessbeasts' return warns I need to spend time again on finances--like it or not.
- Snouted giants in efficient cars: a hopeful image. Even energy pigs can be weaned from oil! In the 2010 election California rejected the Tea Party. Eventually the rest of the USA will quit trying tantrums, grow up, and start the hard work of modernizing.
- Giraffe neck, sunroof: from a surreal song by my friend Mike. Flying High opens with a giraffe in a limo, head rising from the open roof. The dream's suggesting we add this song to our new repertoire, I think.
- ACTION: Propose adding Flying High to the Krelkins repertoire. And... act on my social-investment research! The Tea Party may paralyze US politics and worsen global warming, but I'm still responsible for using my resources constructively.
