Treasure Island

O Anna Niemus


Cable TV


Cable tv..
promoter of war,
architect of materialism,
pusher of prescription drugs,
monger of the flesh of innocent animals,
pricegouger,
vulgarian pandering to the lowest
common denominator,
thief of our air waves..,
marketeer of subliminal advertising,
muzzler of the people: owner of the airwaves,
encourager of couch potatoes,
generator of obesity,
promoter of spectator status,
programmer of sheep


I have been tv-less for over 4 months
.. I have broken the chains.

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
