Tele

Garbage_TV_cartoon_2

tele as in far away
vision as in see
faithful friendship
night and day
one-way company

let’s say
it takes our dreams away
replaces them with
silly thrills
tells us what to think
and say
a million ways
to phrase old bill

it casts a spell
that saps the will
a trap that’s set
on cold hard sell
now be quiet
closed and still
as it circles
for the kill

shiny things
that money buys
over and over
through different streams
& bit by bit
we slowly die
staring starkly
at a screen

switch on
zone out
lose the plot
unable to discern
good from bad
& stuff like that
that we can confirm
