We were being challenged to write exactly 99 words around the topic of Dialogue.
My dialog with a song on the radio
I could hide ‘neath the wings
Of the Blue Bird as she sings
The six o’clock alarm would never ring
“Yeah right, like that would ever happen! This is real life, you know!” I shouted.
The bed was too comfy, the alarm too loud, the coffee canister too empty.
But it rings and I rise
Wipe the sleep out of my eyes
The shaving razor’s cold and it stings
“That’s more like it”, I confirmed, “I can’t be a Daydream Believer, I’ve seen too much.”
I looked at the time, 6:15.
Time to speed up a bit more.
This song was was Daydream Believer by the Monkees.
I quite often listen to the actual lyrics of a song and respond to it.
That’s basically all I do on my morning drive to work.
Do you listen to the lyrics of songs?
Do you also respond to it like I do? 😉
