Poke

Saturday, September 16th, 2017

I’ve decided that I’m going to start randomly poking people with sticks.
On any particular day, without warning, I’ll walk up to a random stranger and poke them with a stick. Because I want to.
Then I will find out where they live and at a time of my choosing I will regularly revisit them and poke them with a stick.
Sometimes I might do this in the middle of the night. At other times I’ll do it early in the morning when they’re just waking up.
I might poke them with a stick several times in one day or for multiple days in succession or not for weeks and then suddenly I will appear again and poke them with a stick.

They might say to me “stop poking me with a stick” and I will say “OK”. But I will still poke them with a stick. Whenever I choose to.
They might poke me back with their own stick. But I will still poke them with a stick. Whenever I choose to.
They might complain to The Authorities. But I will still poke them with a stick. Whenever I choose to.

They are perfectly free to opt out from my stick poking at any time. All they have to do is click a tiny button hidden somewhere they could easily find if they looked hard enough. Then, when they have clicked the button I will stop poking them with a stick.
Only I won’t. I’ll carry on poking then with a stick. Whenever I want.

They might write to me and threaten all kinds of consequences if I don’t stop poking them with a stick.
But I will still poke them with a stick

They didn’t ask to be poked. They don’t even know me. Or care about me. But I have chosen to poke them relentlessly and they can never stop me.
