Television Tedium

Televisual lies puked into redundant square eyes
Lounge alter, Pray the images never falter
The world outside does not exist for you
Another documentary? That will fill the void for 30 minutes
The kids seem happy, watch them drool; substitute parent
Hypnotism in Japanese hardware
Mouth ajar, open mind – empty mind?
Leave your intelligence at the door, it’s not needed here
We can fill your head with cheap propaganda, useless advertisements
A sense of belonging
A sense you really matter,
“It could be you!”, “Are you sitting tight”
Another action packed Saturday night
Channel 1 to Channel never ending
It grabs you and turns you and burns you and breaks you so you can’t escape
“JUST ANOTHER HALF AN HOUR!” as it leads you through its maze
Twisting your soul, Retina burns
You are as one “I’m yours” it cries
in subtitles
in surround sound, in digital
cinema screen
24/7 snare, daily dose of sedatives in family entertainment
“DON’T MISS OUT!”
Another cheesy smile, plastic programme
Quiz show blues to while away the time
Black and white to colour to in your face to in your head
The fake reality takes you away
Better than life
This window to your perfect world
Nightmare in pixels
