A TV like it's s'posed to be,
With no bad words that make Mom mad
And liquor ads that upset Dad.
An ideal TV set should be
Affordable for folks like me.
They usually cost me half my pay,
So I resort to lay-away.
A TV set should come with snacks,
Like Almond Joys and Cracker Jacks,
Potato chips and soft drinks, too,
And lots of Spearmint gum to chew.
A TV never should be small
But cover an entire wall.
A TV on a metal stand
Is so un-cool it should be banned.
TV remotes are a disgrace.
I need a dozen just in case.
I've lost so many in my couch
When I sit down, I holler "ouch."
Remotes are too complex for me.
You almost need a Ph.D
To know which button you should touch.
My brain can only hold so much.
I've thought of giving up TV,
But I'd miss shows like "Jeopardy."
I guess I'll face reality:
That I'm a lazy retiree.
My new TV is here to stay.
I watch it several hours a day.
While poems are made by fools like me,
Still SONY makes the best TV.
