Short: On Humanity

In the UK, every ten years there is a census.
Today, March 21st, is the day for 2021
This is the first one that the Office for National Statistics is operating in a ‘digital first’ way, meaning all of the deeply personal questions can be conveniently and securely answered online and they won’t get hacked or accidentally let anyone ever see the information ever honest.

Anyway, before I open the form–and a fresh packet of Custard Creams to see me through–here’s a tanka.

Thank you for visiting Scribblans today. Sorry it probably wasn’t very good this time.
Did you know, if you share this post on your social media, it might have the effect of making you feel better? About everything?
Yes it could. Well, try it if you don’t believe me then.
