… my wish came true i should not have wished for something so stupid there is a lesson to be learned here but now i’m already in this predicament and the voices … they are not really quiet the way i wished them to be but for once they are not yelling at me and they are not each telling their own story the voices are … in tune … they are all singing from the same page they are harmonising they are filling my head with a melody … i wish that i can wish my wish away i simply cannot listen to the wheels of the bus go round and round … my wheels are falling off please tell the people to sit still my bus is falling apart the noises are assaulting my ears … beep, beep, beep … swish, swish, swish … zoom, zoom, zoom … waa, waa, waa … an earworm, earworm, earworm is boring into my brain … somebody shut off the blink, blink, blinking signals my eyes are rolling around in my head faster and faster i wish, wish, wish to wish my wish away …
Is there anything more charming and delightful but at the same time more irritating than the catching tune of a nursery song? do you often find yourself humming a snatch from an opera? or a piece of classical music? or the refrain of a pop song? yes, it happens all the time but then the urge passes … BUT that nursery song on television or youtube stays with me throughout the day, well into the wee hours of the morning.
