REALITY T.V.? REALLY?

“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” ~Ferris Bueller 1986

Let’s get real.
What’s so interesting about mouthy spoiled brats
shaking their asses around Calabasas.
When I was a bachelor, it was hard enough
to catch the eye of one American beauty
let alone woo a bevy of babes. Surviving
was just living day to day. The natives on
Woola Woola Island have it rough enough,
without television crews trampling the foliage.
I have a voice, but not what others want to hear,
I have a choice and I choose to remotely control
to the saving of my soul what I view.
Reality is waking every morning to face the world,
or the little part of it we CAN control, that DOES
affect our lives. Rambunctious kids and
adult children chasing the “Dream”, American
or otherwise. Battling job issues (If you even have one),
Twits on twitter and TMZ do not phase me,
it’s crazy to hang on every hashtag (#bullshit).
People below the poverty level,
folks battling diseases,
elderly losing their minds in a painfully real way.
Life is not a game we pay. Dog-eat-dog
had it’s day, but nailing the other poor bastard
for the joy of it is also #bullshit.
Rule your realm, take the helm and steer
past the schlock, turn the tube off and live your life.
Really. You be what’s on tonight. You’ll be alright!
