Persecuting Ourselves.


The Vegie Box
TV causes us to inward look,
And put ourselves to book,
It shows us how we fail,
And why we ourselves should flail,
For as inside ourselves we run about,
We in every corner find a doubt,
So we daily have a gnaw,
At every little flaw,
And as our dreams we cannot reach,
We feel we should ourselves impeach.

But though it's evident,
We once were confident,
Of our inner-selves the sight,
Gave us such a fright,
We've become just shivering wrecks,
Who no one now respects,
So though we once the world did rule,
A world which thought us then quite cool,
It has now for us disdain,
And makes its feelings plain.
