Television- The Idiot Box

The television they see
the television they hear
But that is what, I fear
will bring the doom near! !

The news, the songs, the movies they see
The words, the music, the dialogues they hear
The matches they see and cheer
brings my neighbor near to tear! !

I am always in fear
If my child will clear
the last and final year
but that, never bothers my dear! !

The young, the old all alike
see the TV through the night
which always delays my supper
and that too without salt or pepper! !

The news, the movies I never see,
because I always want to be
as busy & ever busy as an ant
& never want to be called Top Vacant (TV) ! !

    I have heard TV is an idiot box, but this is the first time I am seeing another definition for T.V. = Top Vacant- it is quite funny.
