What Is The Name Of The Game? - Poem by Monica Engeler

I never watch much TV at night
My thoughts are on other things
TV is a waist of time each evening
Playing videos just seems right.

When I control the games
I feel nothing is going wrong
My mind is blank and free
There is no one and no shame.

So what game do you command?
I don’t know, maybe the name is chess
If I lie around I would forget all
Continue the moves and don’t demand.

Checkmate the PC won the match
Maybe tomorrow I will win
How come the PC never looses?
Who knows that might be the catch.

I need somebody to defy today
Maybe someone who doesn’t like PC’s
Celebrate a good time tonight with me
If you care, then come my way.

I am going down and I am not returning
You won’t catch me, no you won’t
The chances are over and still don’t understand
I turned the video off, and I am not crying.

    The other name of TV is 'Idiot Box.' Watching TV is not only a waste of time as you said, but also it keeps us idle in a sofa, adding weight to our body when we go on eating snacks without our knowledge. Your poem should be an eye opener to those TV watchers, who want to become slim and keep busy always in some games or other useful activities. (Report) Reply
