The dreaded horrid beastly box,
Is just a perfect hoax,
If you stare at it your eyes get sore,
I dunno how people watch such a bore,
It squabbles and squeaks all day long,
It’s just like a misshapen song,
The television lovers, won’t you like to see,
More views written by me?
In almost every house I’ve been,
I’ve watched people gaping at the screen,
They sit and stare and stare and sit,
Until they’re completely hypnotized by it!
Oh please just throw it away!
I think it rots the corner of your dining room,
Sweep it out with a giant broom,
Whatever you do, don’t say!
Don’t tell me you can’t whisk it away!
“But…how’re we supposed to entertain ourselves?”
Just go ahead, look at your shelves,
Filled with books you never noticed,
Because of the silly box, the fun you missed!
Fill your shelves with loads of books,
Ignore all the sulky looks,
Just sitting there on your couch,
You trick Harry with Barty Crouch,
Just the very next day,
You lead Hansel and Gretel astray,
Whether you’re with Oliver Twist,
Or tricking Mr and Mrs Twit,
There’s always something fun to do,
It’s always a relief to be away from the true,
And soon, blink of an eye,
And everyone’s ready to buy and buy!
Everyone’s thanking you, every grownup and kid,
Everyone’s thanking you for what you did!
READ!! READ!!! Books everywhere!
Books, Happiness in the air!
