The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS May 16/2020. Want.

Shelley Krupa


Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “want.” Make the word “want” the first, second, or third word of your post. Have fun!

Want, we all have wants, some just have bigger wants than others. Before Covid19 most people, let’s call them the haves, wanted possessions, cars, gadgets, clothes, homes, holidays. The rest, let’s call them the have nots, just wanted, a roof over their heads, food on the table, and a job.

Now I want to believe that since Covid19 there has been a sea change and people are more caring and giving. I am not convinced, I know some are, many are, yet many have not changed one iota.

My Pandemic Song.

Tell me what I want, what I really, really want. ….If you want be my saviour, if you want to be my friend you’d make sure the war on want will end.

Do I want to self isolate, do I really, really want to self isolate, after all it not that much fun. Self distancing not easy when your street’s overrun! Do we want a park do we really, really, really want a park, we zigga zag do!

Do government’s give a Zig a Zig Ya?Do they, do they….. do they….Nah!

So what’ya really want, what’ya really, really want? Helping hands are great but what happens when the crisis ends.

Do ya really want a mask, do ya really, really want a mask? Are they going to protect you, is the question you gotta ask?

Do government’s give a Zig a Zig Ya?Do they, do they….. do they….Nah!

I’ll tell you what I want, what I really, really want. Is some clarity, so far it all confusion you see. I wanna know, really, really want to know what the rules are, before we all sink too far.

Do government’s give a Zig a Zig Ya? Do they, do they….. do they….Nah!

So what we want, what we really, really want, is honesty. If we all work together world wide we could be virus free.

I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna I wanna really, really, really wanna zig-a-zig ah!

Do you want to queue do you really, really want to queue, well if you want to eat that’s what you got to do. Oo.

If you want be my saviour, if you want to be my friend, you’d make sure the war on want would end.

Do government’s give a Zig a Zig Ya? Do they, do they….. do they….Nah!

with apologies to the Spice Girls.

Ritu Sis if you fancy singing this I be so honoured 🌹🌹🌹🌹

    This is such a cool rewrite! I totally understand about wanting to believe most people have changed, but it’s hard to believe.

    I would much rather have your government than ours, Willow. Our people are not getting their food parcels and the benefits are also not reaching a lot of people. It is terrible.

        I believe we are going to have to move abroad earlier than our planned end of next year now, Willow. There is going be massive crime, social unrest and starvation here in Southern AFrica. I don’t think it will be safe to drive down the road. Already, people are being mugged and attacked while queuing outside shops.

        Oh! Robbie that’s so bad , it’s like things are stepping backwards. Where are you thinking of moving to . I wonder when we will be able to travel the world again. Sending you love and peace 💙

        I am keen to live in Kent as that is where my roots are. Terence has family in Redding so he fancies living around there. Work opportunities and schools are also driving factors.

        Kent is lovely and you know it, I believe you have visited? When you say Redding do you mean Reading in Berkshire, if you do it’s about 12 miles from where we live now. Both good places to live 💜
