Thursday Inspiration 29 – 07th November 2019

Thursday Inspiration is the creation of Paula of Light Motif II

Welcome to Thursday Inspiration! This is my weekly prompt post and hopefully it will inspire you to write something creative, perhaps a poem or a piece of flash fiction. If you’d like to share your writing with the community, please indulge me and tag your post with #p0eticlicense and/or #lightm0tifs, and of course link back if you wish. I will try to visit everyone who participates. 🙂

This week’s theme is train and the picture is below. Here is the song snippet from “Runaway Train” recorded by Soul Asylum in 1992:

Runaway train never going back
Wrong way on a one way track
Seems like I should be getting somewhere
Somehow I’m neither here nor there

 

The Ima Cummin Audition!

“She’ll be coming round the mountain when she comes (toot, toot)
She’ll be coming round the mountain when she comes (toot, toot)
She’ll be coming round the mountain, she’ll be coming round the mountain”

“You can’t say that no more!”

“What?”

“You’re cummin around them mountains!”

“But l was?”

“Nope, that’s just not PC enough.”

“Not PC enough? What do you mean?”

“Well ‘cummin’ for starters … wrong – sexual inuendo – not acceptable!”

“Sexual?? No, it’s not, l was coming around the mountains!”

“No, no, no, no, no, you were travelling on the tracks at the base of the mountain range!”

“Which shortened means ‘”I was coming around the mountains!”

“No, it’s ‘cummin’ can’t say cummin, nor can you say ‘around’ and you most assuredly cannot say ‘mountains!’

“Why not?”

“Because ‘cummin’ could mean cumming and not just coming! “Around’ one has to ask, ‘a round what? And mountains … whose mountains? Did you ask permission to come around their mountains?”

“Would it be easier if l said ‘coming on top of their mountains? Or on their peaks??”

“Oh good grief, you honestly don’t get it do you??”

“Is coming just bad, or is it on top, or mountains? I am confused What isn’t wrong?”

“I told you ….”you were travelling on the tracks at the base of the mountain range!”

“Well ok….. moving on ..

She’ll be driving six white horses when she comes
She’ll be driving six white horses when she comes
She’ll be driving six white horses, she’ll be driving six white horses
She’ll be driving six white horses when she comes

“Stop!! Whose horses?? Did you ask if you could use ‘Whites horses?” Does White even know you are using their horses in a commercial song?? Also, what do you mean, by ‘you were driving six of White’s horses.. do you have a licence to drive six horses at once??”

“Right, l see this might be a little difficult .. so if l just say a few more of the lines and not sing it, can you tell me if l can sing this anywhere today?”

“Sure, absolutely – shoot ….!”

Oh, We’ll all go out to meet her when she comes

“Nope!”

She’ll be wearing red pajamas when she comes

“Most assuredly not!”

She will have to sleep with Grandma when she comes

“You’re joking right? Surely these are NOT lines to your song?? Why is everything about cummin?? You’ll incite pandemonium here if you start singing about cummin on their mountains and peaks!”

“Well it’s not, not the way you are making it is … it’s an innocent song!”

“Not anymore it isn’t! Failed! Off you go with you cheap inendoes!! Next please!”

 

“It’s a crazy world we are living in when ‘Runaway Trains’ are not even allowed to be sung about in an asylum – no more!”
