This is the tale of a satellite box

Purchased about the time of the spring equinox

I first went to Asda they said have you tried Currys

I'm looking for a sat box not to buy ruby murry's


Popped into Dixons, had a chat with an assistant

Would have sold his own mother, rather persistent

Asked if my TV had HDMI said I want Freeview,

Can't afford Sky


He kept prattling on about cables and coax

So I gave him a jab right in the old thorax

He coughed and he spluttered couldn't speak anymore

Then the manager escorted me to the door


Bought one off eBay with a signal decoder

Clicked buy it now, placed the order

The package arrived without a transformer

To avoid negative feedback thought it best to inform her


The transformer arrived, ready to go

A jumble of cables all over the floor

Set it all up for the first transmission

Just a blank screen and white noise emission

Sorted it out now receiving a picture

Had to read all the set it up literature


First selected language, then selected region

Ended up watching a documentary on the French Foreign Legion

Then selected choice picked paranormal

Found it very boring mostly informal

Switched over again picked geographic, after 10:30 it became pornographic


The wife's cottoned on about my sat box deception

Now all I get is a frosty reception

My beds in the shed so's the TV

She won't let me take my sat box with me.
