a serious side effect…

a serious side effect

aunt bea
said
it ain’t natural
it
just ain’t
natural
how folks
are addicted
to all these new
reality shows
those shows
are
a slow
morphine drip
into the veins
of our daily lives
if folks
want
reality
then
they’ll
have to
back away from
the video tour guides
and
take a stroll down
one of
mumbai’s side streets
or
play kick-the-can
in a soweto slum
but if they don’t
have
any travel funds
then
swing on by
my old south side
neighborhood
round
midnight

  1. oh she’s wise…i often wonder as well what it is that attracts people so madly to these shows…maybe it’s because they’re bored with their own lives.. i dunno..
