The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS March 14/2020

Shelley Krupa

Our host Linda G Hill said: “Your Friday for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “wire.” Use “wire” as a noun or a verb or any way you’d like. Enjoy!”

Linda said wire so, as I have a busy and full weekend I have gone for a poem off the top of my head. It’s called Wired. It’s all about being on edge, trapped and ready to spring, stressed and caught. In essence a state of high alert.

Wire can also be a conduit along which electricity, our voices or even the internet can travel. You could be an electrian and you would wire a building. Or you could be an under cover police person, informant, or a spy wearing wire so catch a criminal or another spy.

Or you could be like good old Cliff Richard and be Wired for sound. Funny video, it’s not meant to be but it’s so dated …. It’s from 1981. Cliff sings of his love of music in this song and how it gets him through his day.

Wired

On edge, fired up, on high alert

Ready to pounce, alive

Quick to answer, clipped and curt

Flight mode set in four wheel drive.

Eyes darting here and there

Limbs electric itching to move

Stillness hurts so much it’s hard to bare,

Brain babbling , your off the groove.

Ready for anything, fit for nought

Your wired, on a wire, trapped caught.

*****

And just for fun For The Birds. By Pixar

Just to prove wired, or on a wire who laughs last laughs longest.😜 Have a great weekend 💜

    If it weren’t for corona, I’d suggest roller skating. Happy Saturday!!

    Ha! I used to go roller skating every weekend, but I wouldn’t have been caught dead in one of those body suits. ❤ Love the poem, my dear.

    Videos from the 80s are the best, aren’t they?
