A Elegy to My T.V.
By Dean Beaty 1/25/11
Ecclesiastes 3:1&3 “To every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under the heaven…A time
to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a
time to build up;” (KJV)
Like from a drug I’m sure will pass.
This tough withdrawal, alas alas.
Alone I face this tragedy,
The last repose of my T.V.
For eighteen year a loyal friend.
At last it has come to an end.
The History channel was the best.
I watched in horror at Hitler’s quest.
I learned much from Discovery.
But not how to fix my T.V.
There were game shows on all day.
I knew the answers anyway.
Fox & Friends, my place for news
Perhaps it’s just a worn out fuse.
With just one hand its tough you see.
To perform an autopsy.
First it must be on the floor.
Oh, that’s Kimberly at the door.
She can help me move this beast.
It weighs 100 lbs. at least.
First the shell must be removed.
At this my wife quite disapproved.
My, oh my, look at this mess.
Where to start was any ones guess.
Schematics I could never read.
But I gave that thought no heed.
Then a trip to Radio Shack
To buy a fuse and put it back.
But still no power on my T.V.
No picture there that I can see.
I looked it over inch by inch.
Thumped here and there with my wrench.
Then one fatal final tap.
I guess ‘twas the wrong place to tap.
Now in parts it’s on the curb.
My FIY was not superb.
Of course you that I am tight.
And once again my wife was right.
But this will mend my broken heart.
They have new ones at my Wal-Mart.
Personal safety in a small package
