A Poem A Day

He is a man in his late twenty
And love stories, he's had plenty
Stories he hadn't lived but seen
Through the colourful TV screen.
Mexican series of love and hate
Of betrayals, friends and fate,
Scenarios he memorized by heart
Of a couple endlessly driven apart
But coming together despite it all
By answering love's gentle call.
The heroes in the end will be married,
The evil mother-in-law will be burried,
These are facts, he just knows
But he keeps on watching the shows.
Maybe, through the brave heroes
Of these lame everlasting mexican shows
He finally fulfills his secret wish
Of being handsome, placid and rich,
He finally fulfills his timeless will
Of having, in his boring life, some thrill.
Maybe he can't live except in dreams
Maybe his life is a sea without streams,
And he's looking for a chance to capture
To end his meaningless life and torture.
Now, once again, he turns the TV on
He forgets his life, memories: none
All he cares about is Pedro and Maria
Heroes of the new series, on the TV 'Heya'.
