TV Through Life

ABC Afterschool Special
was my favorite program as kid
when it was on I never hid
at that young age I was gentle
after high school heavy metal
television has been my life
enjoy watching it with the wife
we have even watched a rental

In navy wasn’t much TV
I was keeping busy else where
today I write as much I watch
most of the good programs aren’t free
only thing free is the fresh air
and now I have given up scotch

    Is this a confession poem? I TOO adore TV. And I probably watch MORE than I write!!!! Love this.

    Sometimes I feel guilty if I spend too much time on the couch.
