(Prompted by one of those unsolicited nuggets of life coaching wisdom you get on Facebook)


I don’t judge the woman or man that’s within

By their race or religion or colour of skin,

Their sexual preference, gender or age

And even cut slack to those wearing beige;

I hold all as equals from whichever nation

But rather I judje you by you’re punctuation,

You’re speling like what all us good awther’s do

And also how you keep you’re poem to a very good rithm two.

You're opening up a fresh can of worms there, Suki.

Hi there John,

I've always felt that magnoliaphobia is the acceptable face of beigeism. Controversial, I know. And it's the twenty-first century.

A type of typo treatise that hits the mark!

Many thanks Douglas, Hannah, Colin and 220August. It is interesting that the pic I attached (and all the others I considered) showed a mix of men and women, blacks and whites. None showed any old gits like myself. No ageism.
