TV and Reality

we have to be careful not to believe everything we see

on TV

the line between reality shows and reality

has become murky

a parade of partisan petty bourgeoisie

on TV

from entertainment to ideology

a warped view of what the world should be

based upon viewer popularity

on TV

where talk shows hosts spew witty repartee

and political pundits dramatically can’t agree

instantly becoming must-watch insanity

on TV

where we can be fooled by technology

into seeing something entirely phony

gleefully watching a bunch of baloney

I think that I’ll never see

anything more deceptive

than a TV
