Toot with a pin

🎢πŸŸ₯🌹 

Stand up, you stalwart working siblings!
Stand up and fight for what is yours!
Our virtuous cry for right is rippling;
Through all lands our song now roars.
Born again to transform old traditions,
Casting out all tyranny;
Building a world to honor our volition,
Our goal to lift humanity!
So call out now in chorus
As a class and hand in hand,
All nations, all colors,
If you toil in any land;
Call out now in chorus
As a class and hand in hand,
Our struggling in unison
Will win a vict'ry grand!

Dying Mum Flora

dying mum flora.
dim? no, my frugal
mind -- glum foray
from a ugly mind.

mainly dug from
my loud gin farm --
languid from my
mild young farm --
my loud farming
forming my dual.

long Friday mum,
road-flying mum,
dragonfly mum, I
glorify mum and
find mum a glory.

my mad furlong! I
grimly am found,
languid from my
mouldy gin farm,
laying from mud,
in my glad forum.

dingy mum flora
dying from maul --
find a glory, mum,
gray old mum.

sorry to randos on global tl if my thumb stars your toots as it scrolls

"im sitting in a room! im sitting in a room!!", i continually insist as i slowly distort and transform into a haunting droning sound

😠 A tootstring for faking complaints about things you actually think highly of:

I can start with my baby nasturtiums, who grow in a box on my porch! Hoping for fancy blooms as my plants grow up.

Tip for you back-coming or just-joining oulipians! All participation is tidal, and slow days naturally occur. But you might miss toots if you don't follow folks from this instantiation, as many lock down accounts. Go look for folks and ask to follow!
(And if "local activity" is too botful for you, don't shy from muting boring accounts. Silicon has no sorrows.)

Mastodon is a "FOSS" social sharing hub. A multi-host substitution for capitalistic platforms, it avoids risking a particular company monopolizing your communication. Pick a host that you trust — you can still talk with all hosts running Mastadon. Any individual can run a Mastodon instantiation and join in this social hub in a jiffy.
