You’ve seen them on TV,

Sales pitches made legally…

“IF” this were true

We’ll sell this to you

In spite of reality.

Antennas for digital broadcasts,

Outside of cable–in the past?

I heard they’re scrambled

Yet the guy’s ambled

Up, selling his antennas fast!

It’s that old legendary

Yankee trader:  be wary…

Nutmegs from trees

So buy these, please,

(Only wood–that offer is scary)!

Are these antennas any good?

The simulated picture would…

Suggest that it’s so

But I don’t know,

If the signals are scrambled…what would?
