Telly the trendsetter


What kids are watching on telly
are crimes and crimes in all variety! 

Crimes of hate 
crimes of passion
acting it out at shocking rate
thinking in some wild fashion
then ending up cell mates! 

When kids watch their movie heroes
shoot down people with the gun
they are incited to do the same
to achieve some thrill and fun.

When they see their very film star
slash someone's throat in a fit of anger
they think well of crimes of rage
and plunge everybody else into danger.

The tendency to portray the violent scene
luridly and shockingly on the Big Screen

Ah even for the small screen, tis the gory
that makes for the dark and thrilling story.

Now that technology's long opened this pandora's box
the dispersal of amplified social ills ain't no hoax

The rowdy hoodlums and reckless gangsters
are simply by-products of Tv influences
The world watches the thriving of the bully-boy pranksters
passively in helpless terror of their offences.

It's all portrayal of the vulgar, the obscene
by that devious Silver Screen

And the horror movie
though it may seem groovy
begets the horrendous
and drills evil thoughts subliminally
into the subconscious! 

It's an unrestrained dark faking
of real life reality exaggerating

Whether it's Bollywood in the East
or it's Hollywood in the West
they don't merely impart tactics of defence
but rather those of aggressive offence

Viewing those gruesome swashbuckling films
gives rise to morbid sadistic whims

Flipping through the TV channels
just ponder if the telly's the perfect channel
of information is it a proper panel? 

Dad always tells me, 'fear ye the roaches' flicking antennae? 
While you oughtta fear the influence
of 'em' flickering images by dish antennae'.

Then a mere single merit that I dug
as I drank cappucino in my mug
that atleast one couldn't live in a bubble
daily watching the bubblebug.

Ah but then tougher gun laws couldn't halt
even underage shooting sprees
Rather it's stringent scanning of Tv content
that might make it all cease

Parental supervision too tis gravely essential
Should've been of parental code quintessential

So the next time you catch your teen
absorbed and engrossed while glued to the screen
Just sleuth a bit just to make sure
that for the x-rated he's not too keen!

    Very Well Written, I feel you have not only a strong opinion on the matter but you have a good understanding of the circumstances of our time and the effects television has on our society, from east to the west. I appreciate your comment, and enjoyed reading your poem, great work my friend, keep it up, your friend, Hani.

    It's a great work you have brought in the focus of the world. Your views & sketches about the impacts of almost all of these action and horror films being showed on TV & Internet are preparing a generation of hate & horror mongers. Glorifying the acts of crime, sex, murder, loots and showing horrors on televisions & through internet are changing the tender minds of our little ones towards selfish motives without any feelings & love for their fellow beings.L&WB always Zaynub...Ravindra K Kapoor

    So true, and it happens slowly over the years. Now, basically no act or word is off limits for television and movies. Great piece. Take care.

    Dark movies by hollywood and bolywood etc with lots of gore and lurid bloody scenes shouldnt be watchd by people since they have a dark evil influence on the mind.
