THE GREAT AMERICAN “IF”

THE GREAT AMERICAN “IF”

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?
