Time Thieves

TV to me is time thievery

Of the worst kind

Stealing precious minutes

That could be spent





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
