Once Upon a Poetic Moon

The carpet's paid for; God Bless the TV
It keeps us informed.
Cosy in our little room with the curtain drawn
one thing's for certain, we still have
our window on the world

Slowly we've slipped
into 'couch-potato-hood'
Rarely, we fight, over which shows are good
You hold the remote,"It's understood."

Flip, flip, you change channels, searching
for a show with some meaning to you, while
I with books piled high beside me, sit oblivious-
searching for meaning in poetry
I battle with inadeqate words against
the TV's droning tune

Some night I'll write one that 
shoots holes in the moon.

    this is such an awesome little peek into your home life, I think!! In my house it is opposite. I let hubbie sit down there with his westerns all evening while i do dinner and dishes and then when I am there for the night, the remote is in MY little hands because hubbie does not even know how to record shows yet and has no interest. So I record all the stuff we watch. haha. (i have to watch SOME things on my own though. He won't tolerate Bachelor) I sure enjoyed this poem of yours.
