Good monkey! Have a peanut as a reward

The monkeys had organized. Demand formalized: what they justly wanted.
“Zoo-keeper! Feed us twice a day. Not only when the light rises but also right after it is diminished. This will be our justice, our happiness, and the only way we will remain in this zoo they made.”
“As it pleases you brothers and sisters.”
The wrangler said “if we double the food we give them, our bottom line might become insurmountable.”
“If they were not in the zoo–under glass, observation, natural, untamed, & non-domesticated. Wild–they would eat twice per 24 hours. This must be in their blood and inherently their experience. It behooves us to risk our bottom line and acquiesce. To not do so would make us despots,” said the Care-taker.
The Zookeeper turned her head slowly to roll her eyes very briefly.
“Ahem. Pardon. If I may, I shall play Arbitour. May I attempt my resolution? Either the peace will return by morning or we will brainstorm further. You take care of their well-being and you wrangled them into this,” said the zoo-keeper, indicating with two men respectively. I keep your zoo. Whatever that means to you, whatever your motivation to keep a zoo and hire someone to keep it for you in the first place: I do not know because you have not said. And, I have not asked because you would have told me the answer already if I were to know it. And, I’d not treat my fellows so uncivily,” said the zoo-keeper.
Agreed, the wrangler and the care-taker went home and left the issue per.
The zoo-keeper acted thusly, both unobserved and in silence.
She took the amount of food the captive animals were already allotted; and, she divided it into two portions.
The monkeys ate the same amount and not a single and healthy calorie more.
Half at sunrise. Half at dusk.
The issue was not impetuous want of over-iindulgence.
The impetus was culturally derived.
Integral to an animal’s existence. To share not one but two meals. As a community and katet.
Lachrymology with an H is the impetuously given word-handle with which we may refer, or indicate, an ineffable experience. It is, at once, both idiosyncratic and indicative of a psychic unity common to our iterations in the now, common to everone in our species.
To know the words, how to write and spell them in Concordance with others. If you raced to and snatched to notch off your list, and then ran like you found a clue in a scavenger hunt race, well then, idiot:
Come sit aside me for a while. We will breathe in through our noses and we will breathe out through our noses.
We will keep our mouths closed and there we will sit
until you experience hot tears of transcendence.
It is that simple.
It is not sadness.
