Leave The Drama For T.v.

Updated on February 10, 2012

When We Have To Say No More

We are vicitms of the television

Day after day we come home from our real lives and then turn on what used to be called the little black box

Now it is full size and larger than life

Sometimes there is little difference

With the special effects,surround sound and three d,high resolution

No wonder people are drawn to the action and the drama

It is better than real life

The problem comes about when the fine line is crossed

Fantasy and fiction become real and imaginary becomes real life

So now you can see why three hours or more a day of t.v. has some effect

We tell the children not to watch to much t.v. but who is telling us

Enough already

You don't think what I say is true

Try a week of no t.v.

See how easy you can be unglued at the seems

Finding fault with little things that don't mean so much

I have seen so many holidays come and go

Where we celebrate all kinds of things

I don't think we will ever see

Give the t.v. a rest holiday

Find something else to do

Some people will be alright on certain nights

As long as their favorite shows aren't on

Not a sports event or a late night special

Think of all the options we have

Net flicks,red box, and don't touch my d.v.r.

For me it use to be rent a movie from Blockbuster , Movies and More or Avenue a local movie store

Friday night at the movies isn't for kids anymore

When we bring drama into our lives constantly

We accept it openly

Then we think it is the way life shoud be

Always funny and exciting and sometimes crazy

Just like we see every day of our lives on the boob tube

It was nicked named that for a reason

You don't have to think

It does everything for you

I am the first to say wow that was so much fun

Lets do it again and again

Then it becomes a habit

We no how hard habits are to break

Scientists say it almost takes almost a month to break a habit we have

That is along time for anyone to wait for a change

So as your day plays out like a movie

See what drama you have ?

Is it real ?

Do we encourage it and engage in it constantly

Welcome it and adore it

Has it become part of our lives and the lives of people we know

Keep an eye on the events that shape our lives

Is it productive or destructive ?

Do we handle it or does slowly cover us like leftovers turned to mold

You hold the clicker that turns on your world

From inside or out

Where is our life going ?

Am I jumpy or a little hot headed ?

Do I snap at the littles thing ?

Is it the way the world is or is it the way I see my world ?

Do I curse when things don't go as I planned ?

Do I do more sitting and watching and lots of gossiping ?

Change those things that bother us

Enjoy the things that make our life incredible

Are we just actors and actresses and life is our stage

Maybe just maybe we are people who love and have learned how to love everyone a little more

      Well I want to see someone point out all the good in t.v.Then I can change my opinion.I think we are getting lazy and very disrespectful as a society.I see it in the younger generation.The grammar mistakes are changed I appreciate all the help.I never said I was perfect.At least I try to make changes where I can.I only pointed out the dark great pleasure to many senior citizens and disabled people.I have always enjoyed watching t.v.It is so enjoyable and relaxing after a long day to sit and watch so many programs.There are many stations that are incredible.The history channel for one.I just seen some of the issues with too much t.v.Thanx again for the insight and great opinions.I live and learn.

      I hope you don't take this the wrong way, but this poem is far too fatalistic for my tastes. Also, you have grammar errors all throughout your poem. Example, "are" should be "our" in the second line, and it is "what used to be," not what use to be. Overall, nice effort, but I couldn't really enjoy it.
