Time Thieves

TV to me is time thievery

Of the worst kind

Stealing precious minutes

That could be spent

-Writing

-Composing

-Drawing

-Learning

And any number

Of useful things

The sound of canned laughter

Makes my nerves shudder

A rerun or a sitcom

Tastes like poison to me

And I wonder how

So many spend their precious time

Glued to the box

Fodder for advertisers

To peddle their wares

That we don’t really need

And I’m human

I watched a little game of thrones

But now the only thing I can stomach

Is rugby league on a Friday night

Cos I know my Dad will be watching

Oh that I should some day

Have as much time

As the TV addicts

That I can spend

Doing anything other

Than watching TV
