Pinned toot


Thank you for linking.
So you know what I'm thinking.
It's coffee I'm drinking.
From hard work, I'm shrinking.

Tomorrow's a dream.
So for today, I'll scheme.
Filling out a paperless ream,
With no solid, fixed theme.

Writing is a long term rite
Done in daylight or at night.
When it's also a website
The work makes me up tight.

The reason is "it's public"
That's the extra trick.
The work's out in the open
Even when it's broken.

Thanks for reaching out.

I'll look forward to seeing how your activity progresses. I tend to reciprocally follow those who are active in addition to those with whom actual conversations develop.

It's too early to tell with an account which has no visible toots in the web profile.

Have fun.

My Plea if You Please

One litters the timeline
With things methinks fine.
Respond with a comment
If you are inclined.

A Like or a Boost
Don't feather my roost
But when you talk back
I get really juiced.

For what it is worth "openwashing" does NOT mean doing your laundry outside.


The justification for all kinds of abuse, not just tax "avoidance".

Not to mention downright planning for getting "favorable" statutes into place to make it easier to let someone else pay taxes instead of "me".

Promises, Promises

Things I post are indirect
Giving you a chance to reject
Or, at least, you can ignore.
But I must warn you, there'll be more.


I do a Sunday dump
A terrible tooting pump.
I'm sorry for the lump
I guess that I'm a chump.
