Poem: Those Commercials!

Those Commercials?


I know for sure

that this Is surely

happening to

Quite a lot

more people

than just me

those tricky

commercials

On TV

everywhere

you can see

And this is one

too many times

and I will no longer

let it happen to me

One can only

wonder

How could that be?

while so many

intelligent people

can also see.

The commercials

are much better

than the actual show,

One can only

again wonder

How after

the first series

They actually

were allowed

to stick us

with a whole other

series of that same

rotten show

Everyone understands

That’s how the company

Pays their bills,

But instead of

the actual show

It’s the commercials

That brings on

these addicting chills.

What on this earth

sells more than a lie,

By the show of hands

Bring on the

honest man

to say he has

never ever told a lie!

They are selling us

dead cats that’s

still in the bags

The bags are

closed real tight

while knowing full well

it's from that

same empty bag,

They will have a

Big feast tonight

I guess this has

been happening

For quite a long while

If I remember correctly,

Ever since I was a child.

I saw one man in a race

Drank some white powder

He then lapped his

competitors so many

times around the track,

The race for them

was not over until

he got finished

went home,

came back after

having a shower.

The men who did not

drink the potion

After the race

they all later fell

flat on their backs.

Now they had everyone

thinking that this stuff

had to be the real deal

those people had

no money

What do you

think they did?

See what a

commercial

had them do!

That why all

commercials

Are promises

only made to you?

There you are

thinking that It’s so cool.

Didn't you mommy

told you before

That a promise

is a comfort to a Fool!

Keep believing those

Commercials!

That's great "AE" I really did not thing that you do, weigh where I was born meant that you were healthy , or your family is rich and you could afford, things other families could not.

I never thought that you were , that's why I said don't even bother.

But 110 is awesome .

Give Thanks.

There you go "AE" you possibly feel the very same way that I do. I am not even mad at them , because it a business and loke with everything else it's our choice , but the lies and it's done over and over. I rarely buy products from off the TV commercial and I will not ever be angry and anyone who doer , for they will come to that conclusion themselves.

I had this series that I was so interested in and after the first episode of following leads , I gave then the benefit of the doubt . Now I realize that the commercial is the true star of the show.

Week after week it's all the same promise of next week , with great special effects and lure . I said . help us!

Thanks "AE" DON'T EVEN BOTHER WITH THE WEIGHT , IT'S QUITE EASY TO LOSE AND GAIN WEIGHT , IT'S ALL IN THE DISCIPLINE.

The commercials i dislike the most are weight reduction, claiming weight loss without dieting, using skinny models..Cheers

LOL. And that's a real genuine chuckle. Thanks you dear Cardisa .

First always for reading and a comments, which from my eyes , hi lights another key area of what I am saying , as that was another issue in the earlier timess , where people had to be a certain way to fit in to society. I had few friends who were beauty queen contestants and man , seeing some of the things they went through to compete.

My main issue , is the very same that have me refusing to watch certain television shows at this time . I truly understand some of the inner workings ,and at one point use to dabble in ads.

But how many weeks can they go on to fool us. Of course I can't call names , but some of the channels who was always my sanctuary have now sold out and I am not blaming them even if they had promised.

Though it can upset I won't let it. Writing is great.

Thanks gratefully Cardisa.

Bless.

What can I say? Whereas I agree that some programs have too many commercials I also understand that without commercial sponsorships programs cannot be aired.

My problem with commercials and advertising is the idea that every thing has to have a sexual connotation. Selling water is sexy, selling cars is sexy, everything is sexy now even food. That's my problem.

Commercial televisions and networks need commercials to survive.

Thanks for reading and getting beautiful memories , expressed in your comments.

If you are not getting the very best of all send offs here tonight , my name will change.

Here is how I see it : You again being warned by dad to keep playing with fire , the fire will just keep on having the opportunity to again burn, and since he also told you once bitten twice shy. Better take that burn to mother.

Then here you are to buy one for the price of two and get the second one free, man you are in heaven.

Once my dad said who can't hear, would feel , don't come to him wining.

Bless.
