Today I got an e-mail from WordPress
To inform me there is a new post
On “Gotta Find a Home”
Called “Sunny’s Newswire”
It’s well worth a read
Here’s the link*

I use Eudora as my e-mail client
Now there are some links in this e-mail
So the program inserts a red shield
As a security precaution
With a big exclamation mark
And the words
“This message may be a scam”

Last evening the prime minister
Came on our TV screen
Saying something or other
About what the government was doing
Or not doing – I don’t know what
We turn the sound off sometimes
To lower the toxicity level
Sadly Eudora doesn’t handle the TV
And so I have to rely on myself



This poem is humbly dedicated to Dennis Cardiff of Gotta Find A Home and Charles Wm Martin of Read Between The Minds. Thank you both for your ongoing work.

  2. I get the big red shield and warning on Fb’s aps. Click on unsubscribe, Does NOTHING. All I can do is mark as spam. Very annoying. Day after day ad infinitum…

  3. The politician shudder. That particular discomfort in seeing bullshit take form, that glorious automaton mismatch between word and intent, blank rabbit stare of parroting the speechwriter’s doubletalk, dead eyed professional lying. Condescending chumminess. Pickpockets and cudgels…

    Thanks for the warning. This stuff is really alarming to me.
