Weekend Wordsmith-I: Don’t touch

Don’t touch (the glass), it will break
Don’t touch (the hot plate), you will be hurt
Don’t touch (the computer), it’s mine
Don’t touch (that crystal in the shop), we can’t afford it
Don’t touch (the apple crumble), it will go straight to your hips
Don’t touch (me), i have a headache
Don’t touch…
A life of don’ts. don’t touch, don’t this, don’t that…
the foundation we lay for your children to grow up ‘don’t-ing’ all their life.

Prompt from this

    Oh I really liked this! We become so programmed not to take chances, to cocoon ourselves in safe little worlds.

I would love to hear your feedback. So write to me: umm.of.on@gmail.com
