“When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn’t go….”
Well, I’m 81, and I’m going to metaphorically “wear some purple”, today by playing; the cute card….
“I’ll have what shes’s having” I’ll have: a kitten, two puppies, and I’ll take a pass on the ideas.
My analysis: Posts of cute animals is viewed, Liked, and commented on with great enthusiasm.
Posts with ideas are wallflowers.
Writers must construct, with amusing images, a Trojan horse (kittens & puppies) containing an idea, to get the readers attention.
So if you haven’t changed the channel on me: here are three ideas:
[A] “He who has a Why can bear almost any How”, Frederich Nietzsche
One’s “Why” cannot be oneself. Emotionally, biologically, and morally, it is essentially Others! -Charles Rogers 
[B] “All Life is One” 
[C] ” There is no them; there’s only us.”
Now that you had your vegetables, here is your dessert: cute horses.

 Jenny Joseph’s “When I Am An Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple”
When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn’t go, and doesn’t suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
And satin sandals, and say we’ve no money for butter.
I shall sit down on the pavement when I’m tired
And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
And run my stick along the public railings
And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
And pick flowers in other people’s gardens And learn to spit.
You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat
And eat three pounds of sausages at a go
Or only bread and pickle for a week
And hoard pens and pencils and beermats and things in boxes.
But now we must have clothes that keep us dry
And pay our rent and not swear in the street
And set a good example for the children.
We must have friends to dinner and read the papers.
But maybe I ought to practice a little now?
So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple.
