I Am Bored With My TV

How can this be you ask
with over a hundred channels to chose from
at any given time
right at your fingertips
If I had back all the minutes
that have turned into hours
surfing night after night trying to find
one program of substance to hold
my attention more than the length
of its commercial advertisements
I could do something more constructive
than catch snippets of a sappy movie of the week
how to make money in less that sixty seconds
watch ex-television stars battle for a new job
reruns of the dying daytime soaps
the reality of having five, six, or eight children
As bored as I am, it seems like today’s entertainment
click by click has at least enabled me to participate in
and enjoy the daily gathering at the water cooler
