Just decided to post a quick poem describing a few things that tick me off about a certain genre of 21st century television as inspired by chancing upon one of the worst television shows I’ve ever seen created this past couple of decades the other night. Please enjoy, and thanks in advance for your continued support!
Why I Hate [Certain] 21st Century Sitcoms
May 24, 2014
Recorded laughter that gets in the way,
Telling me that which I’m to find funny;
Modernized yet spent plots from yesterday,
Recycled solely for sponsors’ money;
Characters with whom I can’t sympathize,
Self-absorbed and obnoxious to a T,
Played by folks whom I’ll never idolize—
Loaded, but still whom I don’t want to be;
Humor that panders to the lowest form
Of intelligence humanity has—
A bitter, sneering, mean-spirited norm
On which long ago, I’d chosen to pass.
A long, deep scar on entertainment’s face,
Once enjoyable, now a sad disgrace.
