Lune Day Ten Excluded

At Kat Myrman‘s suggestion,along with Jane Dougherty, I’m trying out the Lune form this month. The Lune is a three line poem, either 5/3/5 syllables or 3/5/3 words.

Shut out completely

Excluded

It hurts so deeply

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 6/10/18 Metaphor.

This is part of Helen Vahdati’s Song Lyric Sunday.

The prompt this week is supplied by Jim Adams and it is: Use a song with a Metaphor in the title or lyrics. Do visit Jim’s post.

Well I have thought of two, one modern and one older.

Firstly Rubber Ball by Bobby Vee. From 1961. The lyrics are in the video. The metaphor is The rubber ball, referring to his heart and his love and the way his girlfriend treats him.

Secondly I chose another song with Rubber In the title. This time by Kate Bush from her 1993 album The Line The Cross and the Curve. The song is RubberBand Girl. It’s all about life and love pulling her this way and that!

Rubber band girl
See those trees
Bend in the wind
I feel they’ve got a lot more sense than me
You see I try to resist
A rubberband bouncing back to life
A rubberband bend the beat
If I could learn to give like a rubberband
I’d be back on my feet
A rubberband hold me trousers up
A rubberband ponytails
If I could learn to twang like a rubberband
I’d be a rubberband girl
A rubberband girl me
A rubberband girl me
I wanna be a rubberband girl
When I slip out
Of my catapult
I gotta land with my feet firm on the ground
And let my body catch up
A rubberband bouncing back to life
A rubberband bend the beat
If I could learn to give like a rubberband
I’d be back on my feet
A rubberband hold me trousers up
A rubberband ponytails
If I could learn to twang like a rubberband
I’d be a rubberband girl
A rubberband girl me
A rubberband girl me
I wanna be a rubberband girl
I wanna twang like a rubberband
I wanna twang like a rubberband
A rubberband girl me
