TV Poem

political dishwater thrown
from the TV
all of us
covered with debris
smelling
of someone else’s point of view

I’d take my shoe to the screen
but I want to see NCIS I guess
get a little rest
from political debate, reality TV

So you think you can accuse?
Yes, with a shoe
Congress bickering

What’s on Misdirect the People TV?
Who is enabled on cable?

Okay, my mind’s disordered
climbing all over itself
like 5 minutes of 30 second commercials

no wonder people ask if Vienna is in
Australia
or is Africa a theme park?

Are starving people real?

Is God really good?

Can I change the channel?
