Summary

This poem is based on what I view in regards to images I see daily on television. This poem begs to question... Where is humanity? It also asks us, "What is our fascination with death?" I am curious to see what other people on this site think on this subject. Where do you stand? How do we answer these questions? Do you have similar thoughts in writing about the everyday bad we see on film? we see on film? If not, would you write some thoughts on this idea? The goal of this poem is to get people to think.

Excuse me while I choke

on my T.V. again

Shot gun crazy on the expressway

 are classroom shootings the American way

 Hey!

 It is one more child abduction

 one more celebrity seduction

and one more ex-president at a luncheon

 as one more veteran starves on our streets

 Why am I a bit Sin-ical

 I don’t know but I do see images…

 of war… of crime… of death…

 of entertainment?

 I wonder how we can love Lucy so much

 When we are so Lost

 in moving pictures in a box?

 Why am I a bit Sin-ical

 I don’t know but I do

 wonder why it is such the rage

 in this digital age

 to die.

 I feel such indigestion

 with a lump in my throat,

 and I choke… We choke…
