Television Addiction

a poem by Hitesh Chandrakant Sheth Dr

Tom said,” Dear Friend Dick,
Why do you appear so sick?”
“Do you have any major stress?,
You seem to be in great distress.”

“Has your father excluded you from will?,
Or has your wife again incurred hefty bill?
“Has you son again topped from bottom in class?
Or has your boss again called you an ass?”

Has your daughter courted the trouble same?,
By courting some Casanova again.

Dick replied, “These are trivial things,
That cannot affect even my outer being.
I have lost interest in life,
Because cable operators are again on strike.”
