Poetry: Turn On ( The T.V.) Tune In…. by Ian Copestick

Brit Grit, Ian Copestick, Poetry, Punk Noir Magazine

I always wonder, as I walk the streets at night
Past all the windows, behind which there’s light
Just what is going on inside ?
Drinking, drugs, sex or a fight ?
Or is it just rows and rows of blank, dead eyes
Numbed by what the wide screen T.V. supplies ?
Their brains dead, murdered before their time
But nobody will ever be charged with the crime
Soap operas and dumb reality T.V.
Is all these blank eyes want to see
Just a sad reflection of themselves
They sadly, don’t want to see anything else
