mechanical animals

T.V controls us
Telling us right from wrong
I long to say
I like it this way

Like mechanical animals
Here we are
The TV’s radius 
Doesn’t go far

    i guess it is a great influence but it is we who decide what we do or don't do in the end, showing the difference from weak and strong minded people, but then again a lot of kids are raised on t.v but who's fault is that? not t.v but a def good write.

    I agree with Carolyn also, and if it's not the TV it's the computer..or video games, all turning our minds to mush. You did a great job to make people stop and think..thank you for you comments on my featured poem also. ~Trudy~

    Hi, I was here, and read, read twice what Carolyn said! My sentiments too, sorry, God bless Moses.

    Great statement on the power of the media in controlling our lives, Steve. We "mechanical animals" need to look to a higher power to find a better path. Excellent write! Love, Carolyn
