(1950 / Lahore, Pakistan)

Get yourself a life


Reality TV may be extremely popular
But don’t ask me to watch it
No Sir...!
I find it terribly dull

My own life is so full
that I have no time
to waste on other
people’s antics

What worries me though
is that rather than the young
going about their business
they spend hour after hour
sitting aimlessly in front of the telly


Might I suggest to them that
rather than succumb to
the promotional hype
they refrain
from watching so much TV
and, go
get themselves a life!

    As I was reading your poem, I remember a person who was once told me that in India most of the females and even males are so much funned of watching television that they can even skip eating and doing their daily tasks without regret… I am just not sure if the last words of the sentence is right in reality. Watching television is not bad I must say, it is also informative at times… but to not to live a life sitting in-front of the T.V screen is not good, both physically and mentally. Your campaign is good! Hope people will get the positive side of your message.

    Anyway, it is not just in India, it is the trade of the world. Continue writing then, for we are here to read! Thanks! ! ! :) (Report) Reply

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
