Antics of monkeys


Now you must be wondering why Monkeys?

The thing is that like a monkey my brain

Swings from one topic to another at the speed of light

I’m having a conversation with someone about something

And my brain is far ahead of this chit chat

And reached a totally different subject and conclusion

And not satisfied with thinking these random thoughts

It feels obliged to utter them loudly in the middle of that conversation

The bamboozled expression on the face of the other person

Is a treat to watch on these occasions, though it’s embarrassing

When they ask me, what has our conversation got to do with this remark?

And I, in a state of embarrassment would say, “ it’s just a thought that popped into my head”

The antics of my monkey brain are even incomprehensible for me too!


Your prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “antic.” Use it as a word or find a word that contains it. Bonus points if you do both. Enjoy!

In response to Linda’s SoCS- Antic
