A short story by Yoko Ono, 1983

Once upon a time, there was a town called Duckstown. The town was very, very poor. So poor that it made all other towns around it poor. Four important townsmen got together to discuss what to do about it.

"What we could do is to cut down on expenses. I observe an outrageous imbalance in the general family spending of our town. Our men's tradition of drinking bourbon and smoking 'the-fatter-the-better' cigars, while their children have virtually nothing to eat is simply disgraceful. I suggest that we strongly advise the men of our town to reflect on their attitudes." This remark was made by Mr. Middlesex, whose ancestors 'had come on the Mayflower', so to speak.

"Objection!" screamed Mr. Bambino, his face turning red, as usual, when he felt emotionally challenged, and poured his fourth bourbon in his glass. Mr. Bambino was the owner of the Super-Race, a bicycle manufacturing company. "I detest Mr. Middlesex' holier-than-thou attitude. Our poverty has nothing to do with what men are doing. Men who don't follow tradition are still in their diapers, I say. Let grown men take care of this town. We are the ones keeping whatever economy going for this town, anyway. Don't try to mess with our tradition, Mr. Middlesex. You'll be very sorry if you did that."

"I think we'll be alright." That was Mr. Chow, an owner of large chain restaurants. "As long as our farms are functioning, our cows and chickens are well, and if we have enough to eat, I think we'll be alright."

"Who says we're eating? Come to our section of town and we'll show you a thing or two!" This was Mr. Whitelove, an ex-boxing champion. His voice was charged with an anger of a hungry coyote, while his muscles suggested that he was actually a twelve-steak-a-day man.

The more they spoke, the more they confirmed their feelings of dislike for each other.

It was getting dark, and the cleaning woman started to vacuum the floor. Now the four men had to shout even louder over the sound of the vacuum, though none of them asked the cleaning woman to stop. Mr. Middlesex thought it was good that the vacuum was drowning Mr. Bambino's loud voice that seemed to go on without any punctuation. Mr. Chow thought if they stopped her, the cleaning woman would charge overtime and that would be worse. Mr. Bambino and Mr. Whitelove were too excited over their argument to notice anything. Suddenly the vacuuming stopped.

"You guys want to know how to make this town rich?" All four looked at the cleaning woman, stunned.
"Yes, Miriam," Mr. Middlesex addressed her in a way one spoke to a foreigner or an infant, emphasizing each syllable evenly. "We are discussing how we can make our town less poor, and thereby making our people feel not as deflated as now."

"I know how to make this town rich and people happy," said Miriam.

Another long silence.

Then the four men started to laugh. "That's very nice, Miriam. But how would you know how to be rich when you can't even get a house for yourself? Aren't you the one who came to us and cried since you couldn't even feed your sons when Dick died? Wasn't that how you got this job in the first place?"

"I know how to make this town rich and people happy," said Miriam.

"Poor Miriam is in the another world, if you know what I mean, since Dick left us. We shouldn't listen to her. Let's continue with our discussion shall we?" whispered Mr. Middlesex to the other three men.

"I'm sick and tired of listening to your fancy ideas, Mr. Middlesex, 'Change the town's name to Swanstown to uplift your spirit?" What was that? It's coming straight from Lady Middlesex and her leotard men..."

"Leave my mother out of this, Mr. Bambino!" shouted Mr. Middlesex.

"Cut it out! What on earth are you talking about anyway?" This was Mr. Whitelove.

"You're right. We're not getting anywhere. That I agree." Mr. Middlesex cleared his throat. He began to think it was a good idea to listen to Miriam, just to take a break from all this. He wasn't enjoying Mr. Bambino's constant attack on his masculinity, a very low blow he felt. "What was your suggestion, Miriam, let us hear about it."

"Yeah, tell us, Miriam.", Mr. Whitelove joined Mr. Middlesex.

"Well, anything will do, " said Miriam and looked around. "That stone there. That'll do the work." Miriam pointed out the window. There was a huge man-sized stone lying in front of the Bureau.

"That stone, Miriam?" Mr. Chow whispered to the three, " I remember hearing that she dabbles in black magic. This is really unwise. If it ever came out that this committee even considered listening to her..."

"I personally don't care if it's black, white or purple, as long as it works," said Mr. Bambino. "Now, Miriam, as members of the town's Bureau,

new stuff!
