TV

I never watch the TV, Mom,
I don’t use it at all.
I think it’s bad for kids like me,
It shrinks our brains down small.
I hardly ever watch it,
Except for Saturdays.
I don’t want to expose myself to
Harmful TV rays.

I never watch the TV, Mom,
Unless it’s late at night.
And even then it’s just to help me
Get to sleep alright.
I know they broadcast rubbish so
I only watch the news.
Well that, and films and episodes
With excellent reviews.

I never watch the TV, Mom,
Except for after school.
And even then I only watch
The cartoons I find cool.
I s’pose sometimes I watch some dramas,
Crime shows, too, I guess
And also sports, and docos,
That’s it – no more, no less.

I never watch the TV, Mom,
Except for all the time.
You know, you should be proud of me
The shows don’t cost a dime.
I know I’m failing classes and
I never leave the house.
Admit it though, I’m well-behaved,
And quiet as a mouse!
