TV Tea

The TV crackles into action
Spewing it’s contents into the room
A man sits jabbing sausages
From a greasy plate
Red sauce drips
From fat lips to chips
As the TV gasps and gurgles for attention
Selling you its distorted dreams and illusions
Amongst the packets of DAZ and other free offers
He finds another sausage
Taking his knife
He splits it from end to end
And out pops the Six O’clock News
Todays sick and tragic disasters
Lie slumped on the end of his plate
Angrily his fork swoops down
with all the speed of a rattlesnake
Impaling a Cambodian refugee through the stomach
She lies there limp and helpless on the end of his fork
Imagination takes a bite
Buts it’s too hard to swallow
Horrified he tries to spit it out
Again his fork plunges
but this time into his own head
and stabs a thought
He screams in agony
As reality strikes a painful blow
He staggers of into the bedroom
To a chorus of “Whiter than white”
