This morning at 10 of the clock the T.V. screen went blank
Honestly I say to you I did not know which God to thank
The panic on the face of this person will leave an indelible print
Talk about headless chicken – but I’ll put this T.V. on a plinth
Earlier we were looking at a cupboard nearly bare
Now there she was looking at a blank screen with a forlorn stare
Next thing I knew I got the call get ready we’re going shopping
I thought I’m game for that my brow I started mopping
Thinking this inner thought at least we’ll have stew for dinner
And maybe even buy a yogurt – put aside this you must grow thinner!
So into the car and off we go I said and where are we going to shop
I nearly had a coronary when she said; make the electrical shop, first stop
I said but what about the groceries – she said we must get a new T.V.
I had this vision of dinner being a non runner – so I said what about me
We can’t exist with out making sure we have our priorities in the right order
I thought to my-self well I’ve heard it all now until she mentioned combi-box and recorder
No matter what argument I put up this T.V. purchase was first on the agenda
Or the position I found my-self in could only be remedied by referenda
So as I was never going to win this T.V. debate
We made our purchase so the world was now in a calmer state
And I got my T.V. dinner and another item for my Blog
So it’s now time to sit with glass in hand and cheer the demise of analogue.
