Stream of Consciousness Saturday

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “collar.” Use it as a verb, a noun, or metaphorically. Bonus points for using it in all three ways! Enjoy!

Now there’s the ambiguous Dog Collar, that can mean a collar for a dog or a colour for for a vicar or priest. So that is our noun.

Or we could go down the police line , so we would get a verb. To collar, to arrest someone for a criminal act, you can say you felt someone’s collar, that is also an arrest! Also the past tense ” he collared the suspect.

There is also the good old fashioned collar on, a shirt a dress a coat. That like the top paragraph is a noun.

And here a metaphorical Tanka.

Tight around her neck

Like a noose sapping her air

Her badge of office

At births, deaths and marriages

It was always on there on show.

I think that fulfills the prompt .

This silliness was brought to you for LindaGHill’s Saturday Stream of Consciousness.

    A knowledgeable overview, sweet doggie photo, and what I believe is a thoughtful, empathetic take on the responsibilities of clergy.

    Sounds like whoever the clergywoman is she doesn’t like the collar. I have heard their collars called ‘dog collars’ too. I wonder where that came from? The implication being that they are like dogs? or restrained.
