Oh the poor people –
Who must put a disclaimer
In their short profile –
Of a hundred and fifty
Characters on Instagram

Notes to this poem…
I saw a couple of Instagram profiles in the past few days where for some social media freedom, likely, the people had to put a disclaimer within the 150 characters allowed for their profile. Something along the lines all opinions expressed are solely mine and not of my employer. While understandable, if you were trying to say something about yourself within 150 characters, what a waste of space!
The poems titled Tanka, followed by a number, are tanka composed while I was not engaged in some activity during which I frequently composed poetry. That is why these are called the Inactive Tanka collection.
