Daily Prompt: Underground

via Daily Prompt: Underground

Funny, the first thing I thought of when I saw this word was “slavery”.  Then I wondered if there was anything positive affiliated with the word ‘Underground’ and thought of MUSIC.  Which then brought me back to me thinking of it as something negative when referring to slavery…  Not so. The fact is when I hear or see the word ‘underground’ I know there’s a secret of some sort involved. The “underground railroad” led slaves to freedom. Underground music is what you will not find on mainstream radio/tv.  Underground music allows a form of freedom as well. …no you can’t say that on air.  no you can’t use that word.  no, you can’t refer to that.  Underground music is no limit. You say it how you feel it..how you mean it… no sensor.  “underground” leads you away from something towards something else.  Above ground is “the norm”.  Underground offers a whole other world. A free world.   A parallel universe almost.
