Thank you Bob and SA for the kind words :)

Yep, every word there came from an afternoon watching tv (folks in the UK may even recognise a few of those lines, I hope).

I really liked this. It is just plain cute and creative. And (thank god) it was a sweet poem that didn't speak about the angst and pain of life, like everyone else writes these days. Good job, keep up the good work!

You just summarised our reasons for getting rid of the damn tv receiving equipment. We use the tv now as a screen for watching films. Believe it or not, we're surviving! Great little piece of work, rock n howl.

ah ha!
woz just checking back through the poetry lists and found this little gem. our spud's turning out to be quite the creative one!

i think this is fantastic. fresh idea, funny and innovative form. and yes, i did recognise a few little snippets. meant i could relate.

really, you're going to have to stop being so creative! i'll get left behind! stop it!

i'll be watching out for your next little spark of brilliance. this was a nice change of pace.

Thank you to everyone who commented on this. I'm thrilled it got such a good response.
I also liked how everyone seemed to get something different from it.

Pen - I hadn't intended for it to sound that way, but I'm interested that that's what you got out of it; it's a completely different perspective - thank you. :)

Ogg - I know a few people other who have done that as well. It's amazing just how much of an influence TV can have on a household.

c&c - thank you for the kind words :) and as for stopping being creative?? Never! *grin*

You have correctly identified my husbands only fault! great piece fresh and amusing. I loved it.

( Posted by: scryer [Member] On: September 5, 2003 )

I think I'll remain on this channel
I loved it. Click. I agree that it was a very creative concept. I am not a poet by nature, but I do feel passion for the word designs possible in poetry. Click.
