Television

Television, dreamy land.

Reality, Disneyland.

Turn the channel, change the mood,

nothing much else to do.

 

Sounds and sights, spectacular.

Eyes a glowing, like two bright stars.

A life time of adventure, right there on the screen.

From one spot in an arm chair, Oh the places Iíve seen.

 

Not knowing for sure, who Iíve become.

Images blending

into a conglomerate of one,

telling me how

I should think and feel.

Iím spinning Iím spinning,

like a video real.

 

Past and present,

fiction or fact.

Involvement, happiness or sadness,

detached.

News mixed with fantasy,

to add to the thrill.

Not knowing for sure,

whatís false,

whatís real.

 

Television,

dreamy land.

Reality,

Disneyland.

Turn the channel,

change the mood,

Nothing much else to do.
