TELEVISION ON/OFF

Oh, joys of ‘The Cisco Kid’
thrilling me, how it did…
And… ‘Howdy Doody’
watching was every kid’s duty
I could not wait until we got a TV set
All my dreams were then met…

That child is gone away
My hair is now grey
Now the TV has its say
It shows me CNN…
… all the way to Iraq
… and back again

My TV, a surrogate soldier,
has gone to war…
…… I don’t think that
I like it anymore…
