T.V. is rotting your head!  Reply with quote  

While searching for the werewolf/vampire poem I was telling Hillary about (which I couldn't find), I found this, which I wrote one night after hearing some nitwit use multiple tv catch phrases in one conversation.

T.V. is rotting your head!

Some people look
for a life less ordinary
What's the point?
Ya live
Ya die
Ya pay taxes
(my uncle)

Yadda Yadda Yadda
Your life is reduced
to a Seinfeld catch phrase
How pathetic is that?
Don't have a cow man
(Mr. Bartholomew J. Simpson, Esq.)

Inspiration is the mother of desperation
or some such bullshit
hey, who am I to judge?
I never could live up
to my potential
(per high school guidance councilor)
no real prospects here

a life less ordinary?
I would kill...
for the day to day drudgery
of an ordinary life
POOR POOR PITIFUL ME
(copyright- Warren Zevon)

Sound bites and movie quotes
not an original thought in the bunch
maybe originality springs from the mundane
maybe nothing is original anymore
it's all been covered
been there, done that
(mountain dew, I think)

Nothing is new anymore
kind of depressing
Isn't it ironic,
don't ya think?
(that Canadian chick)

what is left to do?
you carry on
hold your banner high
and hope no one notices
you're a poser
You go Girl!!
(some unknown twit)

What comes next?
What is left to do?
What CAN we do?
What's the point?
Why bother?
Why?

because if we don't
all we have to look forward to
is the next repeat of Friends
now that fuckin' scary man

carry on.
if nothing is new
keep searching
put in the effort, man
don't let the bastards
Keep
You
Down

If you kill your television
it doesn't make you a bad person
it means your on the right path
the path to righteousness
hey, Dr. Lector ate people
I'd still invite him to my parties
LOVE YOUR SUIT
