“NEW & IMPROVED ADDICTION FACTORS!” a poem Sept. 12, 2018. a.k.a.: “Unanswered Wake-Up Calls From The Mystic Poet!” 🙂
Why even bother to-ever leave your home?
(There’re) No food needs WITH NUTRI-SYSTEMS, so you don’t need to roam!
The programming’s brilliant, on your favorite TV,
And TiVo is PERFECT – So happy you’ll be,
And, even IF you can’t get that SEXUAL CHARGE,
Your devices have great porno and the “members” are large!!
Every movie and/or sit-com, that we’ve ever enjoyed,
Is showing REAL SOON! Who-needs to be employed?
When you can borrow money, from The TV – tonight:
Mr. Wentworth’s your friend, and his song’s outta sight!
“Gosh! Why-am-I-so-tired?” said my-wife to me;
“Well? What’s your total time outside?” I asked sin-cere-ly.
“Oh, I get out a lot!” But I knew that she meant,
Riding-in-cars-with-devices – which-is-as-good-as (being in) a tent!
Our devices are TV programmed – during commercials, you can talk,
With all of your long-lost friends! Who live on your block,
AND – all of your relatives and all of your pets,
TVs and devices are REALLY safe bets,
To explain why we’re tired – and sleeping so much;
You get up(?) quite tired – and lack natural touch,
And lack time in the sun-and-fresh-air-activity!
Come on, folks – It’s our nature! THEY’re-touching-our-pro-clivity,
TO – JUST SIT AROUND, ADDICTED AND TIRED,
On sports, “soaps” and news channels; we are totally “wired!”
And, then, all your OTHERS – are urging you on,
With COMMUNICATIONS, Baby – We-gotta-talk-’til-the-Dawn!
You can always grab you a good book, I guess – and skidaddle,
OUTSIDE! Anywhere! I KNOW! IT’S A BATTLE,
To get yourself walking – outside – with The Sun,
‘Cause sitting with TV and devices – it’s so wonderfully fun!
Yet! OF COURSE, my Friends, it-is – still OK to forget,
THE SUBJECT OF THIS POEM – For The Sweet Internet,
Has conspired with Big Pharma to advertise all their wares,
For people! Pretty tired and depressed, JUST DEPRESSED, with such cares:
A LITTLE MEDICATION? Then! STAYING INSIDE IS ALL RIGHT;
Just forget about “your troubles!” With-a-Biologic* LIFE’S BRIGHT!
“Satan”(?) is dancing – a jig in your head,
AND, ON THE “THIRD DAY” YOU WON’T RISE;
YOU’LL BE DEAD(?)
And! Even-IF-you-go-outside! WHO CARES? You-got-PHONE,
So, you’ll never get bored – and you can be QUITE ALONE! 🙂 – Yippee!
- new, healthy name for whatever you are taking to keep going!
