we’ve got, a file on you

there’s a twitter(ing) in the hedgerow

we’ve got a file on you

pressed for words?
are you ready to take a tumbl(r)e?
not pinterest(ed)?

we’ve got, a file on you

it’s not about you, it’s all about.me
there’s no happy medium
it’s the first stage of lighting a fire

and don’t forget

we’ve got



poetry | 101 | rehab |  file

My (late) prompt for this week’s Poetry 101 Rehab is FILE.

So, this week, do you know what they know? About.you? Do you care? Inspired by comments on last week’s post, Apple’s spat with the FBI, and a moment’s reflection. Are we just the kindling for someone else’s fire?

You can link to your post in response to today’s prompt by leaving a comment on my post and / or by clicking on the poetry | 101 | badge below and leaving a link.

And you can also tag your post with Poetry 101 Rehab so that it shows up in the WordPress Reader.

  1. this is brilliantly and wickedly well done Andy …… and certainly …. it is controversial …. the idea of “how much is truly secure and safe” – “protected’ etc. and for what reasons …. which makes this all the more provocative and exacting…… it’s important to stop and consider – to seek and search and question …. and then, decide what “truths” we accept for ourselves … and act/react accordingly. Great job!

      1. that’s very true ….. we have no idea what we’re doing …. although we like to think we do …. as for the consequences and aftershocks …. some are immediately obvious – but it’s the subtleties that are harder to know ….


  2. And while I may be only fooling myself…this is why I have my blogs under a nome-de-plume.
    I will be dragged kicking and screaming into Face’plant’, I’d rather use my IMagination to instantly get satisfaction creating a verse or fiction, I’ll whistle at my birds thank you, and tumble with the grand(children), I could only get on PinterPatter if I joined Faceplant – so I didn’t do that either. I don’t even do ‘Google +’ and even under my given name there isn’t much info that is free… The images site has none of ‘me’ either. Am I safe? Probably not.

    Not exactly a file – more of a memory:
