television is bad for you

poetry

the television is deceptive
in that it seems to project
but really it injests
all your time and energy
and people being frail
things then go unfixed

you

gotta grease a human’s palms
to get him to do a thing
or else he’ll sit right
by his television,
and it’s deceptive in other
ways, too.
