Television Addiction Poem by Dr Hitesh Sheth

Television Addiction

Rating: 5.0

Tom said, ” My! Dearest Friend Hick,
Why do you appear so weak and sick?
Do you have any major stress? ,
You seem to be in a great distress.'

'Has your father excluded you from his will? ,
Or has your wife again incurred a hefty bill?
'Has your son topped from bottom in his class?
Or has your boss again called you an 'ass' '

Has your daughter courted the trouble same? ,
By courting that wanton Casanova again.'

Hick replied, 'These are the trivial things,
That cannot diminish my zest and zing
Now I have lost interest in life,
Because cable operators are again on strike.”

O those lonesome folks who seem to think television is their only true friend, it reminds me of my father who watcvhes television all day long stating that way he at least feels like there's something lively going on in the house. How pour and desolate are those tv slaves who waist the better part of their live wachting it all go by them. And for myself im addicted to smoking cigars regrettably, for that smoking is like taking a break from everything and smokers often get together talking and relaxing. Thats my excuse for smoking and i might ad since i was very stressed once while i still held a job my smoking moments hav e increased as i take one more break from evrytrhing time and time again. And smoking seems to be a legal excuse to take a break when you''re doing something, maybe something you want to get away from and are afraid to admit that. Makes one wonder how we woukld live as we incorparate the soul into our daily life. Dreamgreetings from Sint Nicolaasga Boomfriend Ruerd

too much love will kill you, darling! so keep it in the middle! whatever, whoever, whenever, wherever, please do not give your 100% of love to them. just being normal, not so up, and not so down. this poem suggests us not to give addicted-attention to things. very nice!

Well said Homer Simpson! Thank God for sane folks like us, who keep television addiction at bay, by banishing the idiot box from home. Addictions: love, benevolence, success, cranial activity, running, and of course juggernaut of them all, s..
