I had a dream we set my mind to work trying to interpret it's meaning.

 

I had the strangest dream last night
like many dreams it was bizarre
filled with various images
funny as they usually are.
 
I brought some kittens home with me
just as cute as they could be.
My larger dogs tried to eat them
but I jumped in to set them free.
 
I worked hard with the dogs and cats
and I helped them live together
they soon became the best of friends
in storms or in pleasant weather.
 
Someone gave me the biggest snake
which I didn’t want to take home
but I put him in the front room
and I thought I would let him roam.
 
Before I’d even turned around
he tried to swallow a kitten
which I retrieved quick as I could
and saw that I had been bitten.
 
Next he reached out to grab a dog
which was just trying to play
the snake bit my other hand
as I pulled my dear dog away.
 
When I awoke I was in shock
and tried to interpret this dream.
My past studies had taught me
to search for a common theme.
 
The kittens were my small problems
the dogs made the problems greater
the snake was the much larger threat
which showed up even later.
 
Little problems always exist
but they’re swallowed by those bigger
and we don’t like to tackle big ones
though we should, we don’t seem eager.
 
If we solve the little problems
the big problems still are there
but solving big problems first
can help us avoid such despair.
 
Unsolved problems which are so big
seem to hide the small ones away
but if we deal with each at once
we’ll solve the others another day.

Can't we all just get along? No, your dreams says that, in order to live, some animals must be other animals to our disgust.
