Action: Watching TV
Word: Child
Word Count: 95


Mesmerized by a rectangle
Its flashes of colorful eye candy
Its barrage of cacophonous ear buzz

Watch me! Watch me!

Too tired to resist
Just flick the switch and switch the flick
To something boring, or titillating, or stupid, or scary

A child’s nightmare

Entertain me! Entertain me!

No will to resist
Grab a burger, pop a beer
Take in the daily meat and drink

Why do we open this Box of Blather
The substitute teacher that teaches us nothing
When we can go outside, look around, and breathe?

There is magic in the air.
