By request following a conversation.

C. J. Black.

Apologies for being parochial
But are soap operas an acquired taste
Could they be classed as being colloquial?
If you ask my opinion they’re a total time waste.

Monday – Friday the box in the corner spews out this make believe life
Internal family argument – thriving on struggle and strife
All this takes place between pm6:30 and 9:00
Then you are bombarded with news bulletins –where to draw the line.

Day time T.V. is no better with repeats from the night before
It’s Dr. this and Judge that – blood – letting and artificial gore
The discussion around the dinner table can be stimulating
Especially if you’re not a soap buff – you’re left alone talking to yourself – I know it takes some explaining.

Everyday real life stuff must be really dull
As you never see late night repeats, with the exception of politicians ‘preaching bull’

  1. Made me Laugh Out Loud, CJ, for you have written true, and so well.. . Conversation dwindles when The Box is on… . Thank goodness I have Sky, where they have complete Box Sets of personal choice, Nature, Natural History view whenever you like. .. Keeps me quiet for hours on end. 😀 xPenx
