Well, as promised last week following my “Poem of the Week” at the time, You Disappoint Me, here’s that poem that I’d promised you all would be more upbeat and/or discuss a topic that I haven’t discussed here in a long while. It should be a rather self-explanatory piece that—as was the case with my poem from September 20, A Matter of Self-Reliance—follows the Roundabout poetry style that you can find out about here on Robert Lee Brewer’s blog at WritersDigest.com, should you be interested. Anyhow, without further ado, here’s A Message to All Who Want Change in the Media. Please enjoy!
A Message to All Who Want Change in the Media
September 26, 2013
So I hear you’re sick of the same old crap
And you want to hear something new.
Well, the way to begin
Is to screw your heels in,
For such a change starts with you.
Only your ambition will see you through
This mess the media’s been in
For who knows how long
With the same tacky songs
And shows that are tasteless as sin.
It takes guts to save the media from the bin
And help humanity right the wrongs.
It takes nerves not to snap,
Edge into which to tap,
And stamina to stay in the long,
And if you’ve got it all, you can stay in the long,
Especially if you pull no crap
And keep doing what you do,
Forever staying true
In your quest to kill the media’s rap.
Well, that should do it for today. Thank you all for reading, and a special thank you to my most recent subscribers, Roger Tharpe and Jordan Policicchio, who also have blogs here at WordPress.com. Also, as per the message of this week’s poem, always remember that if you want today’s television shows, books, movies, music, etc. to change for the better, it’s up to you to see that it does. Continue to support quality work from talented artists any which way you can, and if you’re truly feeling ambitious, never be afraid to join in the movement yourselves. That being said, thank you all again for stopping by, and happy reading!
