    It is much worse now that we can watch videos over and over. Children memorize every word and talk incessantly about videos. What are they filling their souls with? Commercial material designed not with their well-being in mind but to turn them into consumers. (Report) Reply

    Simply nice poem... I like this line

    They'll wonder what they'd ever seen
    In that ridiculous machine,
    That nauseating, foul, unclean,
    Repulsive television screen!

    What an objective view, though with a dash of imagination, has been taken about the ill-effects of television in this poem. This is there for all of us to see. Amazing piece of poetry. Thanks. (Report) Reply
