An Ode to TV News

You can slam a door, a book, a fist,
when you're frust'rated with fed-uppery,
you can make unsightly gestures.

But you daren't expect to press a button,
or mute or surf
with similar satisfaction,

whilst those glowing boxes,
and their talking heads
spew forth nonsensical, babbling bull.

And befoul the ears of Common Sense.
