    This sounds an awful lot like Television, the Drug of the Nation by the Disposable Heroes of the Hiphoprisy, published in 1992. (Report) Reply

    You're sure right about television. I watch it for something to do but in a sense I've come to hate watching it because it's not real living. But if your alone and have no one to talk to what you gonna do. Maybe one day I can have a real life - can you help me by visiting my TV 1 line, or short poems, here: http: //onelinepoems.blogspot.com/2012/04/one-line-poem-about-dr-quinn-medicine.html
    I have this vision of hell as being me, or someone, sitting alone in pitch dark on the laptop or watching a tv. hope I'm not upsetting anybody - don't mean to (not the truth - just a silly thought or day dream) (Report) Reply

To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
