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.

September Music 13

For the month of September I am going to choose a piece of music or song and write a poem or alternative version. Jane Dougherty is doing a September Stanza here. And Kat Myrman is doing September a poem a day Here.

Today’s piece of music is Yo Yo Ma and Piazzola , Libertango.

My interpretation.

I need to Tango Tango,

I mean the whole fandango.

I need to strut Tango.

I need to step and side step

I need to spin and twirl

I may have body of an older woman but I am still a girl.

I need to meet the eyes of a man. I need him to hold me to him, to move me , he can can can!

I need high heels, and a red dress I want the rush I need the sex I know I will blush blush blush!

I want to Tango Tango

I need to dip and angle

I need to sway, and over, a strong arm to dangle.

I need excitement I need distraction

I really crave satisfaction, action action action!

I need to fondle and be fondled.

I need to excite and be excited OH! I need to Tango Tango

I need to see a man go wild and spin me off my feet.

I need to Tango Tango I want to tell everyone so I shall be sweet.

I need to Tango Tango in a new dress and some spangles!

I need to glide and swirl I need to to pretend and in my head be a dizzy dizzy girl and twirl twirl twirl.

Magic Mittens

There in the  window  were  the  magic mittens

She  stood in the  snow  totally  smitten.

Oh! she longed  to  own  them feel them in her hand

She  knew  they  would  suit  her  and  they would look grand.

No Mittens

Maggie  always  wanted  mittens

Intent on owning  some  was  she

Treasure to her were they

Teasing  her  from  the  shop window

Eagerly  she  counted  her  pennies

Needing  just a  few  more

Suddenly  they were gone!!!!!!

Not the A to Z April Challenge : Yearn

I yearn to fly, I yearn for blue sky

I yearn to dance never  asking why

I yearn to see your blue eyes

I yearn to hold  your  hand

I yearn to  kiss your

Ruby red lips

I want

More.

Music Themes: Hunger

Bear  chose  this  weeks  theme  HUNGER.

Lorde  Yellow Flicker : Mockingjay  Part 1 Hunger games

What is  this came  true?

Years before the start of the series, the thirteen districts attempted to start a revolution against the Capitol. The Capitol won, District 13 was destroyed and, as punishment, an annual televised death match called The Hunger Games was created by the Capitol. Two participants, one male and one female, known as tributes, between the ages of 12 and 18 are chosen randomly in a “reaping” from each district. Children may volunteer as a tribute instead of selection by ballot. They are taken to an arena and fight until only one is left alive.[8]

Katniss Everdeen is a 16-year-old girl from District 12 who volunteers for the 74th Hunger Games after her 12-year-old sister Primrose Everdeen is picked for reaping. She survives the games along with Peeta Mellark when they both defy the Capitol by threatening to commit suicide.[8]

The Capitol is angry at their defiance, which inspires rebellion in several districts. Katniss and Peeta tour the districts, attempting to subdue the rebellion. Then, the reaping for the next Hunger Games takes place. For these games, part of the “Quarter Quell” that takes place every 25 years, winners of past games are forced to participate. When only a few participants remain in the games, including Katniss and Peeta, the arena is destroyed. Three of the tributes, including Katniss, are rescued by survivors of District 13, but the other three tributes, including Peeta, are captured by Capitol hovercrafts.[9]

The rebellion continues with Katniss being used as a figurehead.[10]     more info  here 

Elastic Heart: Catching Fire Sung  by Sia  

A Future  world vision.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chandelier  by Sia.

A whole generation  hunger  for meaning  in their lives. They  want  a real reason to their  being. They don’t  see it  so  they  drink. They  get drunk  before  they go out  then  they act badly  then  they hunger  for  forgiveness to get away  from their shame… they do not get what  they want  so  they drink more!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Then there is self inflicted hunger,  some starve  themselves  because  they  do not want  to grow up, because  they  are  or have been abused. So  many reasons  for anorexia . Song  from Maria Mena

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Charles Dickens  wrote  the story, Lionel Bart  wrote  the songs.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A clever  song  from Marina  and  the Diamonds.  About  how  the  media  and fashion  world  wants  to sell the female  as a perfect (  just as relevant for males too) It depicts one girl  bucking  the system!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The  most reliant song  about  hunger  to this day. Band Aid. Do  they know its Christmas. 1984

EvDaDaDec : DIVINE, FINE,MINE.

 

I  could not  believe  their beauty, going for a song

Well it  may be an opera , calling to me  with a message oh! so strong.

Lovely, lovely  comfy boots calling  out  to me

Buy us they pleaded ,go on  set us free.

I wanted them, no I did not need them.  How beautiful are they

Striding  through the door , I’ll have those boots in the window I say!

OH! they feel so DIVINE, they fit so well give me now MINE!

Can’t get home quick enough  to check them out . So FINE!

Now I am floating through the streets, in my boots so neat.

People stop and stare, I am flying high feeling so sweet!

I feel young, I feel sexy, I know I’m not  but I feel complete

My boots , so new, so gorgeous, the best, a real treat!

Frustration,madness

google images

It rages in my head the hunger for it goes unfed. It crawls around in sludge like an almighty dread, it screams and and groans and claws at my head.

The need, the greed consumes me, it ripples through my brain pushing pulling to the brink of pain. To lift me high then dash me down again . They crawl and grab they lung and stab. Body to body soul to soul they creep through my head writhing, grinding ever faster to reach their goal.

They flounder they grapple they bite and they suck , they cry and they scream and they curse at my luck. The sword fights the cross and cross starts to burn and fight thunders through my head and Oh! how I yearn.

To be eased, appeased , sated and pleased. Not baron dried out and  teased. It is eating me up and it wont let me rest I need it I want it I demand it this is not a request. It is driving me mad it is making me sad I am upsetting my friends and strangers think I am mad.

It is gnawing me, goring me, splitting me in two and they will all creep inside me what on earth can I do. HELP ME, help me I am going mad oh! just forget it it’s all so f##king sad!
