Televisions playing

Televisions playing
hours in a row
numbing the minds of many
so they may never know

What really goes on
behind the scenes
all are blinded
by their screens

Conversation stops
for the TV now speaks
killing imagination
making us weak

Sucked up in a world
that is not real
losing the ability
to really feel

Images of war
unfortunate normalities
killing the grace
of any morality

Subliminal messages
taking control
polluting the spirit
destroying the soul

Mass consumption
is the thing
the song of greed
is what we sing

Eat and buy
buy and eat
we are all told
what we ‘need’

Because we watch
hours of TV
we are willing to follow
like proper sheep
