Three Colored Pigs

Once upon a ZeroTime we suffered great terror and loss. People, animals, and plants refused to speak kindly with each other because of a Big Bad Wolf named Ms. Climatic Change by her delightfully demented transparents. Most all credible scientists in that day were prophets of falling timeless skies, flaming forests, failing aquifers, fowl winds from Big Bad SheWolf's breath, both bad and way too Yangishly big. Meanwhile, most bad faith people could not believe in this SheWolf blowing Ms. Change until on their own doorsteps they saw and heard Her violently colonizing threats to feed and birth more rabid cubs with ravenously monotheistic intentions, confrontations, engagement in violence on behalf of past and future peace. The first little pig Blue is a democratic optimist especially about scientific law and hopeful order. Her pen is made of goddess straw and entertaining tinsel tin because that's all her Sacred Owner could afford while shopping for better whips at the repurposing station. She had the supremely democratic displeasure of attracting predator Wolf's initial advances of a most unfortunate climate event. Her house blew Blue away before WiseElder wolf covens deciphered We're all feeding this Big Bad SheWolf together! So little pig Blue, reborn baptized plutocratic by recycling fear and terror, ran all the way to her new climate grieving home, penned up to couch surf with or against prickly republican fundamentalist pig Red. Red pig called out to the Big Bad SheWolf, Declaiming God's punishment for sharing too much herbal tea and probably THC, with eastern and southern idolators; Calling down God's own retribution for hugging, and otherwise worshiping, sacredly creative MotherTrees, rather than begging Owner Patriarchal Sun for next Paradise promising a better nutritious life. A better Red wealthy life through normal stick-built single family Great Economic McMansions fenced and moated sanctuaries from Big Bad SheWolf's growing blowing threat and bitter bite. Shutting out ultra-violet nightmare rabble, if not Big Bad SheWolf vampire problems of Earth's discomforting demise while all God's true orthodox children move on up to timeless Red BusinessAsUsual Capital Paradise. But stick-built autonomy and boot-strap conservative sanctuaries, for monoculturally superior pigs, metaphysicians of intelligently systematic sacred story and orthodox fundamental theology, did not save Red nor Blue pigs from Gaian love for ClimateHealth even more powerful than God's just punishment through SheWolf miseries named Ms. ClimateChange. Even gated stick-built McMansions, and missionary fishing boats, and carts for shipping and shooting people and blowing other species up and off to dungeons burn or flee as Big Bad Wolf defeats quickly fading second chances for restoring happier make-love endings reworking ego's wanton piggish longing for healthy eco-justice. Third little pig Green built her home of natural clay bricks and stone, with front and back yard gardens filled with organic edibles and chickens to share with Big Bad SheWolf and all her hungry cubs, Neighbors longing for healthier water and soil and divine Blue secular and Red sacred cooperative air for breathing in climates of matriarchal courage. Curious SheWolf extended family by inviting outward cooperative climates of nonjudgmental inquiry, spoken and non-violently mentored in WinWin organic strategies, freedom from colonizing WinLose motivations, filling gracefully in as active organic creolizing vocations to retire pandemic ClimateChange tsunamis in favor of green international ClimateHealth for wolf and pig, people and planet cooperatively self-owned EarthTribal Future Investors in ham and bacon and other porky products suitable for great-grand cubs and piglets to never think of eating their young and old. All these self-producing piggy products lived with their restoring projects together with SheWolf and Cubs happily ever timeless after climate acceptance of interdependent risks through WinWin opportunity, scientific ZeroSoul revolutions, humanity metaphysical evolution, theological non-racist systemic experiential volution gently knocking on open doors for ecological solutions and resolutions and better organic SheWolf endings.
