‘Repeats & Spam’

A tribute to Dr Seuss….

‘Repeats & Spam’

Could you watch daytime TV?
Could you watch it in a tree?

Could you, would you, watch the box?
Could you, would you, in just your socks?

I cannot watch this Jeremy Kyle,
I couldn’t watch it for a while!

I couldn’t watch these spoilt brats,
I couldn’t watch these lovers’ spats!

I cannot watch these orange blokes,
I wouldn’t watch this Hollyoaks!

I couldn’t listen to Walsh or Cowell,
I think their music views are foul!

Could you watch post-watershed?
Would you watch it off your head?

Could you, watch this exaggeration?
Would you, under heavy sedation?

I couldn’t watch these silly soaps,
I couldn’t watch these reality dopes!

I cannot watch this Jersey Shore,
I do not know what this is for!

I will not watch these stupid ad’s,
I will not buy into horrid fads!

I do not wish to make a claim,
I think this money grabbing’s lame!

I cannot watch this Spam-I-Am!


Inspired by ‘Green Eggs & Ham’ by Dr Seuss, and the flashing box in the corner that likes to shout/beam these strange things at us. After randomly coming up with a couple of rhymes, I felt compelled to try to write a whole piece. Written for fun only.
