42 Words #16

Hey everyone,

So last week Dave took us to war and we had a few interesting pieces come back but I’ll be honest, this week Sadje’s choice of 16 might prove challenging to say the least but before we take that road let us first review.

Dave from MMA Storytime

Chelsea from A Wife, My Verse

Doug from Six Crooked Highways

Sadje from Keep It Alive

So this week Sadje has selected good old number 16 and when I saw the theme I will admit I went ohhh.  You know that long drawn out questioning ohhh and then in about sixty seconds I’d written my piece, so it wasn’t that difficult after all.  So what is this week’s theme you ask?  Well its ….

IDENTITY

So to good old google identity is defined as …

Identity is the qualities, beliefs, personality, looks and/or expressions that make a person (self-identity as emphasized in psychology) or group (collective identity as pre-eminent in sociology). One can regard the awareness and the categorizing of identity as positive or as destructive.

But I think (yep there’s identity right there) that you can go a bit further than that in this prompt.  Identity theft, social identity, digital identity, just to name a few.  I am giving you free rein to explore this topic in any way you like but I have one limit .. or rather 42 words.

So, another week down but we still have a few to go, so if you feel the urge please participate and just because I like to give you all something to do, anyone want to guess what our last theme will be?  If so put it in the comments.  I’ll go that cold, warm, hot thing in response.

GONE GONE GONE GONE GONE 6 GONE
GONE GONE GONE GONE GONE GONE GONE
GONE GONE GONE GONE 19 GONE GONE
GONE GONE GONE GONE GONE GONE GONE
29 GONE 31 GONE GONE GONE GONE
36 GONE GONE GONE GONE GONE GONE

Here’s my take on this week’s prompt:

Commit a crime?  Social media here you come.

The Capitol Is Stormed

The Headlines Read

But in this time of digital

There were no cries of off with her head

Cameras, surveillance, social media

Did the rounds real quick

Twitter, Facebook and Instagram

Find the culprits, just take your pick.
