JA–NA–KEE! ON “WSKG”

Before signing off around one,

“WSKG-TV” would run…**

JA-NA-KEE,

Phoneticly,

Until the program was done.

In tights a young woman sat,

Imagine a boy seeing that…

Lotus seduction

And breathing instruction,

The boy would try..sitting pat.

Folks of the Mind-Body-Spirit,

Hare-Krishnas in it…

Buddhist routine

What does it mean,

Some folks won’t go near it.

–Jonathan Caswell

WSKG** was and still is a Public Broadcasting Corporation-affiliated TV station in the Binghamton, NY area.Back then, the station did not offer 24-hour broadcasting.

SISTER WENDY

SISTER WENDY

(on P.B.S.–no relation to a new blog friend!)

Sister Wendy wends her way

Around the world to display,

Objects d’art

A la carte,

Treasures in this modern-day.

From her convent retreat

Sister Wendy finds most meet…

Pictures of desire

Lighting inner fire,

Though her analysis is sweet.

The “making of” special announced,

I readily watched to pounce…

To learn more about

Her habits no doubt,

Presenting it all with great bounce.

I’d grown up with her, by the way,

On a Binghamton station she’d play…*

My parents aghast

At this iconoclast,

Who cheerfully walked away!

–Jonathan Caswell

* Binghamton, NY, WSKG TV (I forget the channel)…in the mid 1970’s…I was in High School, so deemed old enough to watch.¬† Not sure if my parents really were aghast, but it rhymes!!!
