Changing Horses

Twitter’s a sewer; I find I press fewer and fewer times launching that app. An agitprop brewer, though slightly less bluer, these days, my feed’s mostly pure crap. There’s fodder for poems (you probably know ‘em) such as Florida Man’s escapades, like when he bought the farm when a gator disarmed him while hiding from cops in the ‘glades. So, sometimes I open the app when I’m hoping to get inspiration to write, but it’s time to change horses and find better sources that won’t disappoint me tonight.

A fun write. I do not use any kind of apps. I do not want to learn how to use them. Have a blessed day/weekend...............

I know it’s true, Jeff: the algorithms are skewed. I used to use a site called e-horse that generated random lines from online publications but it is no more. Some poetry sites have random line generators for first or last lines or random lines. Hope you find one. SuZ
