Daytime TV

I like to watch daytime TV

Its mix of chit and chat

On shows that show how life can be

That share the same format

And smile advice about lifestyle

With daytime repartee 

Then promote the latest you must have

And the latest celebrity





I like to watch daytime TV

Its mix of chat and chit

It’s you can be philosophy

And five a day keep fit

And although it can be lightweight

And the content substance free

I prefer the on screen take on life

To real life in 3D





I like to watch daytime TV

Its mix of this and that

Its spicey life variety

Its cosy fireside chat

But when the daytime credits roll

And the ‘have a great day’ said

The lunchtime news of bad news is

By face unsmiling read

As on the screen the newsreader

With practiced gravity

Reminds me why I like to

Watch daytime TV

Man on the Street

He says the sun is too yellow

There’s too much water in the rain

He likes to moan about things

Claims it keeps him sane





He says he knows a thing or two

About a thing or three or four

He likes to moan about things

Has an ever-flapping jaw

And with ever flapping hands

Every word is underscored

His vitriolic vitriol

Is mightier than the sword





He likes to moan about things

He’s a moaning A to Z

No subject he won’t moan about

He’s a moaning thoroughbred





He moans about the universe

With universal disdain

But when you ask him how he is

He says,

I can’t complain.
