I dreamed I got to meet my inner saboteur (thanks Dad!) That was useful information. But then I dreamed I WAS my own saboteur! Got to see how it felt from inside. More useful still.

But don't worry. You have no saboteur.

I dream my dad can pilot
Single engine planes
He flew us down a mountain road
Skimming a yard above the lanes.

He creeps on slower than the traffic flow
My sister and I yell ďHurry!Ē
He yells ď45ís not stalling!Ē
As truckers honk in fury

Slowing me down--my dadís class war.
And the truth is the fatcats do eat the poor.
So out of loyalty, I slack
Though whatís my slacking for?

In the next dream Iím the saboteur
I build the first plane, but Iím just the mechanic
Flyboy hogs all the credit...
So I set him up to panic!

I cripple his plane so he barely skims
Over the tops of redwood and fir
A wild evasive ride for him--
Let him fly--heíll never soar... never soar!

Dragging me down--my dadís class war.
And the truth is the fatcats do eat the poor.
So out of loyalty, I drift
Though whatís my drifting for?

So go the lives of me and my sisters
Skimming a yard above disaster
My dad sure hated smug success
Better forty years in the wilderness...

No love or money--
Well, just enough to starve
Revolutionary purity:
Not a have-not, nor a have!

Pulling me down--my dadís class war.
And the truth is the fatcats do eat the poor.
So out of loyalty, I fail...
Though whatís my failure for?

A crude plane barely clearing treetops
