the downside of dreams and the realization thereof

Rotundo, the elephant, after decades of hard work, anguish, and prayer, finally achieves his dream of flight only to notice upon landing how sore and weak his abused feet have become over the years.


Humano, the hairless biped, after millenia spent in dreams of flight, finally submits to a full body scan and being packed and shipped like freight to Mississippi in order to visit the family for the ritual thanksgiving dinner and religious fistfights.


Monsanto, the spirit of invention, having achieved major success in bio-engineering, becomes suddenly aware of unforeseen consequences of this work after being knocked unconscious by falling elephant dung.
