Sunday Scribblings "Boob Tube"

I picked up a plain mirror still in the packaging at a garage sale. I gessoed it, then painted with acrylics. It still needs a coat of varnish. I don't usually paint this color combination! Sometimes I wonder what subliminally influences me!

The last few days I've been under the weather, my sleep is totally discombobulated, thanks to horrible moans (hormones). Not been traveling to my computer much these days either. Hmmm I wonder if there is fire in the ire of them there horrible moans? (Said with a Beverly Hillbillies accent) So here is my poem for the " Sunday Scribblings"

Boob Tube


Traveling the tube

Of disgust

Young women

Exploited

By men

For photos

The Children suffer

Long term affect

Unknown


Blatant

Mental illness

Ignored

Buried under

Sensation

And addiction

Rarely visited

With accuracy

Left Unreported


“Click”

Politicians

Battle with lies

Degradation

Insinuation

Disregarded

Impending need

Of economic

Stimulation


“Click, click, click

Starving children

War still raging

More unrest

The globe

Incensed

People dying

Still no

Relent


Click

Million dollar kid

Internet prodigy

Lives minimal

Ringo

old now

Launches

Album

I contemplate


Aboriginals

Tearful lady

Suffered

In residential schools

Sex abuse

Beatings

Years later

Still waiting

On compensation


Darkness

Reigns in

The unknown

Diatribes continue

With truth

Unexposed

Click, click, click

Searching for a giggle

Composed, I seethe

Great job on the mirror and I'm really sorry those darn hormones are beating you down. HUG

Your poem is sad but true. I watch TV alot due to boredom but I do see what's going on.

Feel better. XXOO

The mirror is wonderful. I love the colors. The poems is equally as fun. Cartoons are always playing on our TV and I am always playing on the computer. I'm surprised that lines from SpongeBob don't show up undetected in my stories. Peace.

Excellent and exciting poem! Me thinks you should stick with Animal Planet!
Your Mirror is Magical! xoxo

Just love this minimulist style of writing you use in your recent poems. So different and very effective. Loved it.

Hey kiddo:

Just was reading below catching up on lots of your blog. I'm thinking the influence on this mirror is Valentines Day. Does Canada celebrate that one? If not, then it is in the air flowing north. Big smile.

Sorry to hear your horrible moans are still affecting you so much. Time for them to let go and settle down.

I like this mirror! I picked one up at a yard sale, too, and have been meaning to paint it. Thanks for the inspiration!
