Mimicry

What’s with the mimicry?

Have you no originality?

Mimicry


What can be there underneath my floor?

Stick around, entertain me some more

Be my friend and we’lI dance all night

You’re very wired and won‘t soon stop your plight

Why stay down beneath dark floorboards?

Is it ‘cause rent you cannot afford?

And what’s with the mimicry?

Have you no originality?


Why mimicry, now?

Why mimicry, now?

Why mimicry, now?

Why mimicry, now?


What can be there underneath my floor?

Be my guest, but let’s dance ‘till we soar

Mimic me, I sure don’t care

Just stay here and don’t you go nowhere

I have no friends ‘cause I stay inside

There’s something way too strange with the world outside

Stay with me and we’ll dance ev’ry day

Though mock me, you never betray


Why mimicry, now?

Why mimicry, now?

Why mimicry, now?

Why mimicry, now?


But must I teach you to dance free of charge

Since you still mimic me?

Though I like teaching to a degree

You vex my sanity

Yeah!


Oh, why mimicry, now?

Why mimicry, now?

Why mimicry, now?

Why mimicry, now?


Mimicry

Though I like teaching to a degree,

you vex my sanity!

Mimicry

Echoes can be close,

personal friends,

until they wreck

our nerves

by mimicking us,

without end!

Mimicry

Have you ever

had an echo

as a very close

and personal friend?

Did it mimic you,

relentlessly,

without any

fathomable end?

Our shadow

is like a “visual echo”

that copies

our every move;

if we walk, it will also walk,

and if we dance,

it will most assuredly

get into the groove!

Another knock-out piece, Tamara. Sorry, I got here so late, but better late than never!

No. Your voice is very sweet … very sincere. It is so special being ourselves! Simplicity becomes a boon then. Much Love, Tamara.

BBYCGN (author) from Uninhabited Regions on August 31, 2018:

Dora, this is a thought-provoking question, for sure! I will think further on this. Thank you ❤️❤️❤️

If I could put audio in here, Manatita, I would sing it for you! This would be fun for me, and scary for you!

❤️❤️❤️

What if it's another real person mimicking me? I'll have to make it worth the while. Good job of providing the tune.

manatita44 from london on August 30, 2018:

Interesting. An original piece. Trying singing it for me. How are the children? Much Love, Tamara.

Ha ha... Flourish. It’s an echo-o-o-o-o. Or, it could be a monster pretending to be my echo...yikes! Lol.

❤️❤️❤️

Makes me wonder now what’s underneath the floorboards
