On a Winning Streak of One

Who put the “Why?” into laughing?

I have lived past the point of being beautiful.

We painted the fence pickets different colors.
We used the entire Sherman-Williams sample set in order.

The fence went on for fourteen miles.

It is difficult to determine if the thrashers see color
and noticed the chromatic variations.

I recall I placed one hair on each paint-damp picket.

Somehow this became a religion
and I traveled the land, painted fences and placed follicles.

Does that make me a loser?

Can a loser bring home eight figures a year
in internet donations?

I am now a professional head scratcher.
