Turn on the T.V., switch off your brain!
Agony and ecstasy and commercials.
Skipping channels.. car-wax, tortured bodies,
Shampoo, floods, catastrophies, dog food.
The images de-humanised.
You become desensitised.
The deaths are real, the sex is sanitised.
Images melting into one screaming phantasmagoria!
Video -clips, media bites, ugly politicians
Lying to me again and again!
T.V. evangelists selling salvation.
“ Have your credit card details handy,
And just phone 1800 666 God Bless America! “
Plastic people pushing the latest Abflex 2000
Abdominal sculptor tone-machine.
Guaranteed to give you a six-pack
In six days or your money back!
Sweeping through this arid televisual landscape,
You might happen upon a gem!
Something to stimulate the mind or lift
The spirits of jaded souls.
Enjoy these rare moments
Because T.V. is mostly crap.
Turn it off! It’s a trap!!!!!
