Thanks Max! I
Love ‘..knits up the ravelled sleeve of care’
With regard to your thoughts
On social media in an earlier 
Post, I think there needs to
Be some in-depth discussion
Right across the board and
Probably some serious curtailing of the big corps’ 
Power and do they need to 
Be broken up? The stuff
Of dreams I suspect. 
The advent of the factory 
Has led us here to this 
Big world factory. 
Craft was better?
Factory farmed populations
Pre-agrarian daydreams.

Ha ha I waffle
