Sedative Viewing

I always feel self conscious late at night
Never happy with my current figure.
New abdominal machine advertisement
Shows on two of the three mainstream networks,
Honestly ….

Arkansas ministers devilishly southern drawl
Commands attention with domineering passion.
Sure I’m tired but seriously… What is this guy on about?
Confidently he tries to express his opinion academically
Trying his hardest to appear as if his word is scientific.

His naivety is quite comical to witness
And I the lethargic viewer could make more sense
On any subject no matter how complex.
With a twisted smile he looks into the camera
Confident with his lunacy.

Eventually I roll my eyes turning my back to the screen

Refusing to accept that anything said on this program
Has any credibility whatsoever.
I drift off to sleep satisfied in knowing that my life of sin
Is at least a life, not an existence?

Artist's Description

Just a product of what 3 wines for lunch can do for you. Written in 5 minutes, not a strong piece but cheeky. :D
I have a guilty pleasure and that is watching evangelist TV before bed at 2:30am. Not that I stay up to watch it but if it happens to be on it’s very decadent viewing.
