Television, a Sabbatical (a haiku)

Humpback whales are usually more than sixty feet long, weigh about forty tons and produce sounds that last as much as twenty minutes...all in books!

Watching television,

Questionable, just who knew,

In our decision.

If what media says is true.


Forty hours a week,

An average time, we spend,

Eyes are bugging out,

On our vision, to depend.


Time to turn it off,

Find more worthy things to do.

Boost intelligence,

Read a good book, very true.


Keep our sanity,

Tell friends about this vision.

No calamity,

An education mission!



A little T.V.,

Is okay for us to see.

But once in a while,

Let's go television, free.

I don't even own a TV--I haven't the time for it.
