Sonnet LVI

It saddened me to hear my brother say,
“There’s nothing here to do without T.V.”
When I was his age I played by myself.
I had no siblings yet and made up games.

I read, I made neat crafts and music too.
Inventing things to play is what I did.
And now I use my creativity
To write these sonnets and play piano too.

Alas! Will youth today not learn to use
Imagination as a tool and gift?
Will T.V. be all that they think is “fun”?
And reading, arts – will they be boring too?

Today’s society will atrophy
If life revolves around that damn T.V.


  1. awww, that's so sad! and it's sad that it's true, too, yeah. tsk tsk people!

  2. This is the reaction I like best...when people realize things they never did :)


A word is dead
When it is said,
Some say.

I say it just
Begins to live
That day.

- Emily Dickinson
