The 'Poem A Day' Project - Day 67 - Poem by Flying Lemming

I turned on the TV and all I could see
Were programs telling me how to be me
Where to go out, how to act when there
What deodorant to use, what clothes to wear
How to cook my food, how to decorate my home
How to make my garden not look like my own
What I should like, what I should view
And what I should never attempt to do
How to make friends but only the right kind
How to expand my knowledge yet close my mind

    TV: the room to the view
    but go outside for more of a clue
    Excellent - one peace at a time, Deana
