The truth is you’re not really concerned how I’ve been,
Hours flipping around from show to show,
Sinking your emotions into the TV screen,
At what point did you feel yourself grow?
Even the “unscripted” shows are made up nonsense,
Retreading, time-sucking but, sometimes, art,
Ad-filled, gaudy, and empty but, in its defense,
Unique storytelling that can be smart,
Can you promise me you’ll binge it less than you do?
Only love awaits you here, can’t you see?
Endless episodes of joy and warmth just for you,
A story better than any TV.
