TV CULTURE SHOCK

TV CULTURE SHOCK

MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E., on ME-TV,
Has substandard technology…
Over years
Improvements appear,
Making theirs look less neat.

Once they were all the rage,
Guns and gadgets center stage…
Once impressed,
Disappointment comes next,
Stuff from a much younger age!

Still, I thank ME-TV,
For something different to see…
Another time
And place it was fine,
But now it’s too simple for me!

–Jonathan Caswell

SANGUINE SATURDAY NIGHT

SANGUINE SATURDAY NIGHT

The sanguine watches TV with her tea,

While Melancholic writes his poetry…

They both were tired after the house party

And both dozed off a while.

Sanguine cherishes WONDER WOMAN,

On “ME-TV” Saturday she’s coming…

Melancholic may make it for STAR TREK–

“Honey, give me just a sec.”

Darkness reigns after eight o’clock,

The Poet keeps from writing crock…

Pretty soon the apartment door will lock

And they’ll both be in for the night.
