The Challenge of TV
                                   Authored by Chuck Keys


While watching TV in stride
My eyes were stuck inside
Unable to blink or think
     color tone tint secured the link.

The scenes change and grow
While characters ebb and flow
     Happiness vs. Sadness
          Love vs. Madness
               Good vs. Bad
                    Lady vs. Lad
Noise quiet music and war
Movies ads sports and more. 

Monotonously consuming time and space
     Forever deleting brains trace. 
Reading and writing math and science
     Gives life’s basics for actual reliance. 

Escape and reality are a choice for some
     Easily made by those who aren't numb
Life is what's outside the box
     For those who are sly just like the fox.
